‘The most beautiful thing was that Noor suddenly stood there and gave that speech’

As king of the Summer Games, Harrie Lavreysen (24) returned from Japan with two golds (sprint and team sprint) and one bronze (keirin). His childhood sweetheart Noor Luijten (22) had to watch it ‘paralyzed’ by the stress from the Netherlands, and then fully went along with the hectic that followed. In the run-up to the World Championship track in Roubaix (20-24 October), where Lavreysen will defend three world titles (team sprint, sprint, keirin), they share their special experiences. And the powerhouse reveals why his Norwegian gave him a lump in his throat with emotion.
