“I was so happy today crossing the finish line and realizing I had won gold,” said de Jonge. “My entire year has been geared toward the world championships and a lot of thought, hard work and focus on the finest details went into my preparation. It was really rewarding to have everything pay off. I’ve thought about this day for years and the joy and satisfaction of winning is as good as I could have ever imagined."
