The Netherlands’ team for the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships have this month received the Royal Dutch Swimming Federation (KNZB) Performance Prize for 2019.
The prize – one of a series of awards given out by the KNZB – was handed to the team by KNZB President Marius van Zeijts.
In total, the Dutch team won 21 medals – eight of them gold – at the World Championships in London to earn the KNZB recognition.
Liesette Bruinsma led the way, winning three golds and two silvers.
The Netherlands did not send a team to the 2017 World Para Swimming Championships.
The award is a team prize, and several members of the Dutch squad have also announced their retirement from the sport.
