Special thanks to Frans van Bakel, Paul Schlösser, for the information I got from them! Without their help this database would not exist.

A quick summary of the sources of information used:

  • Preben G Petersen (WSSSA) provided lots of data and the help of Paul Schlösser.
  • The early years the books from Jan Kleine “Schaatsjaarboek” (until 1973), papers and a lot of books in Dutch about speedskating
  • WSSSA books a lot of the them, editor Trond Eng from Askim (Norge)
  • Schaatsseizoen, publication from “Stichting Schaatsseizoen” editor(s) Hedman Bijlsma and friends it’s published every year
  • From the internet, shown as links on the home page and a lot of more internet adresses
