Flemish Match selection
The match or "interland" is an annual competition between England, The Netherlands, Flanders, Walloon region and Nordrhein-Westfalen of Germany.
This year's event will take place near Weert, in The Netherlands. De Laatste Post has written two articles on the last event about the interland maps. They are worth a reread if you want to come prepared.
Today, the Flemish team has been announced.

The first two runners of each category were selected during last sunday's WC event in Sonnisheide, with a challenging course setting by our very own Yves Briers. The third runner and the reserves (not mentioned here) are selected by the teams commision.
With such a team, the English should better be scared and start training :-) More specifically, IF Brahe's Bart Delobel was not too shy to show his impressive shape at today's training run.
