Dutchman Noël van ’t End will miss the World Championships. Last week the 26-year old Dutchman got injured to his shoulder and broke the top of his shoulder. He will missing in action for a three months recovery period.

“It’s unbelievable that I can’t compete next week. I’m just back to my old level and had a very good feeling in advance of these World Championships.”

Van 't End took a bronze medal at the Grand Slam in Ekaterinburg in May. He won the Grand Prix in Tbilisi last year but the Olympic Games were a huge disappointment.

Dutch coach Maarten Arens targeted a realistic number of two medals with his team. "We didn’t achieve two medals over the last three major tournaments'. The Netherlands won just one bronze medal at the last World Championships in 2014, 2015 and 2016 Olympic Games. The Dutch team consists of five male and six female athletes including Kim Polling who didn’t fight since the Olympic Games but has fully recovered from her injuries.
