  • Description

    Twenty-two well-known Dutch women ice skaters, took part in a speed skating match at Vries, Holland, Jan. 12. Among them was the 1959 national champion, Mrs. Martha Wieringa, aged 24.

    Races of this kind are particularly popular in Holland's northern provinces, where three or four are held every week while the ice lasts.

    Winner of the 140 metre dash at Vries was 23-year-old Mrs. Tienkamp, who received the first prize of GBP10. Mrs. Wieringa came second, receiving GBP6 in prize money.

    The match began in fine weather, but heavy snow was falling as the women completed the day's racing.
