By ( again, just like 4 years ago in Sydney ) winning a gold medal on the 50 meters free style swimming, Inge de Bruijn became the first Dutch athlete in history who has won 8 Olympic medals: 4 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze. Kol haKavod! Our 5-year old daughter was very happy to hear that she shares the same family name with this champion. She does not know yet that there is a tiny difference between Bruin and Bruijn, I did not want to spoil her enthusiasm.
