High bar gold for Epke Zonderland at gymnastics world championships

Dutch gymnast Epke Zonderland on Sunday added the world high bar title to his list of achievements at the world championships in Antwerp.

Zonderland is also European and Olympic champion – the first Dutch gymnast to ever win Olympic gold. ‘I’ve won every title, it is fantastic, a dream come true,’ Zonderland told Nos television after the event.

‘But I have no plans to stop and will enjoy my sport for a couple of years to come. Today was good but not perfect and that is the stimulus I need to do even better.’

Zonderland ended just ahead of Germany’s Fabian Hambüchen.
