At skate suits it is the intention, that everything is very tight. Then you have no charge of the wind and you go faster. The skate suits are tested in a wind tunnel, so they know that the suits are good.

The first skate suit is introduced in 1974 through Franz krienbuhl

The complete package has been built from all several substances and that makes the suits very fast and comfortable. Every substance is different. There are several brands:

Credit crunch22/3/2010

All the banks are helped by the government. The government bought a lot of shares so the banks are saved. Slowly the banks are going better. The Dutch banks were in trouble as well: De postbank, Fortis &  ABN Bank need help from the government.


Now is the economy growing in Holland and the banks changed there position on the market.


The only bank who is broke in Holland that is de DSB bank. The DSB bank was a big sponsor of the ice skating, So there was a problem with the ice- skaters because they had no money to pay there materials and trainings so they have to find a new sponsor, eventual the knsb want to pay the materials an trainings temporary.

Aegon have been more than 30 years  sponser of the Dutch skating.

Aegon want help Young skaters to make them dreams come true. That’s one of the reasons that Aegon sponsors the skaters. Aegon sponsors :shorttrack,  figure-skate. Aegon is the’’ father of the ice speedskating’’.
