Degrendele Smashes 30 Year-Old Record

The closing day of the 80th Lotto Zesdaagse Vlaanderen-Gent also featured a fun interlude, namely the successful record-breaking attempt by Nicky Degrendele. The Belgian top sprinter set a new track record in the 500 metres. Degrendele’s time of 30.257 made her 3 seconds faster than Italy’s Rosella Galbiati in 1981.
