There is so much to admire and respect about The Netherlands! Sure, it is home to Douwe Egberts – and has been for well over 250 years. There is so much more to this small country, though. The Netherlands has always shown liberal and tolerant attitudes with cultural and social matters. Dutch painters are arguably the best in the world. And this year, at the winter Olympics, The Netherlands has ruled in speed skating.
In the middle of last week, The Netherlands had as many medals in speed skating (21) as other nations had in all sports combined! With one day to go, The Netherlands is in 5th place in the medal count, with 24 total medals. [The Dutch Olympic Teams placed 5th overall, immediately after the United States in the standings.] That the Dutch team is the third-smallest delegation makes this even more impressive. There has been a lot of talk in the media about their complete dominance of this event! They have ruled the podium.
