Bart Deurloo's Comeback Set For This Weekend

Dutch Gymnastics National Championships are set for this coming weekend featuring the return and comeback of Bart Deurloo.

Deurloo, known for his intricate high bar work and for bringing attention to a floor defect at the 2017 Montreal World Gymnastics Championships, announced his retirement from gymnastics in February of this year. After working for a few months as a National Team Coach Deurloo said he, "missed the physical and mental challenge [of being a gymnast]."

As reported by DPG media, Deurloo will stay continue to train Jordi Hagenaar and Martijn de Veer until the end of June while simultaneously returning to competition shape himself. His motivation for returning is to help the Dutch Team qualify a team to the 2024 Paris Olympics after failing to do so for Tokyo.

The Dutch Gymnastics Finals will take place in Rotterdam on June 24th and 25th. The list of registered athletes can be found here.
