Van Vleuten hoopt vandaag ziekenhuis te verlaten (video)

RIO - Wielrenster Annemiek van Vleuten (33) hoopt dat ze vandaag het ziekenhuis in Rio de Janeiro mag verlaten. De Wageningse kwam zondag zwaar ten val tijdens de wegwedstrijd voor vrouwen op de Olympische Spelen. Van Vleuten leek op weg naar een gouden medaille, maar door haar val belandde ze op de intensive care van het ziekenhuis.

Bij haar valpartij liep ze een zware hersenschudding en drie kleine scheurtjes in haar wervelkolom op.

Onderzoek
Van Vleuten moet nog onderzoeken ondergaan, voordat ze het ziekenhuis mag verlaten. De wielrenster laat op Twitter weten dat het mislopen van de gouden medaille haar zwaar valt. De wegwedstrijd werd gewonnen door landgenote Anne van der Breggen.

The 27-year-old Brit finished fifth in the women's road race in Rio today and was never really in contention for a top three finish after struggling to keep up with the leaders through the tough climbs. Speaking after the race she said she was proud of her efforts and was keen to spend time with her family after a gruelling past few days both physically and mentally. Annemiek van Vleuten in horror wegwedstrijd fietsen crash in Rio 2016 Annemiek van Vleuten in horror wegwedstrijd fietsen crash in Rio 2016 The 27-year-old, pictured during the race, finished fifth after struggling to keep up on gruelling climbs through the tropical mountain course As reigning World, Commonwealth and British National road race champion she was one of the favourites to win but ended up 20 seconds behind Dutch winner Anna van der Breggen. But the race itself was marred by a horror crash when Annemiek van Vleuten, also Dutch, went head over her handlebars while leading the race towards the end. She was coming round a tight right-hand turn on the tropical mountain course when the bike spiked upwards and she was sent flying over the side of the road. It is understood she was not seriously hurt but the accident caused quite a stir among her fellow riders and spectators. The mountain climbs proved Armitstead's undoing, although she said she had been working on that aspect of her cycling.
