AMSTERDAM (NED): After a breakthrough season in which she climbed to No.1 on the European rankings for 400m, Dutchwoman Lieke Klaver has spoken about her move up from 200m in 2018. Klaver, who has run 22.66 and 50.98 this year, told European Athletics: "I had honestly never thought about it, but my coach Rogier Ummels said 'try it, you would be perfect for 400'. I had always liked the lactic sessions anyway so I thought I should give it a go! The 400m is detailed and a tactical race, but a different kind of technical race than the 100m, and I like the details of the 400m better."
