OLYMPIAN SPEED SKATER KOEN VERWEIJ SIGNS WITH BJÖRN BORG.

Top ranked Dutch ice skater Koen Verweij is known not only for his remarkable skills on steel blades, but also for his signature golden locks and viking like good looks. Verweij is now joining forces with another sportsman’s clothing brand, Björn Borg – similarly known for exceptional sports achievements along with good looks.

The Dutch ice skater debuted in the Dutch junior team in 2008, and was in the Winter Olympics in Sotchi in 2014 rewarded a silver medal at 1500 meters as well as a gold medal at the team pursuit. Verweij also won gold in the prestigious World All-Round Speed Skating Championships for men in 2014.
