Congratulations to Epke Jan Zonderland the Dutch gymnast who won a gold medal on the high bar at the 2012 London Olympics. Not surprisingly Epke's nickname is "The Flying Dutchman".
|Dutch Gymnast and M Line mattress enthusiast Epke Zonderland won the Gold medal in the Mens High Bar at London Olympics 2012, he scored an astonishing 16.533 points to secure the first ever Gold for the Netherlands in this event. Epke’s routine made the difference with its high degree of difficulty. Its unique combination of flight elements - the Cassina / Kovacs / Kolman – gave him an edge over his competitors.|
|Epke who was plagued by shoulder and back injuries used his M Line mattress to aid his recovery and to recuperate after peak performance.Epke stated:
"A good night's rest is very important to recover from the day before. Before I always had shoulder problems because of the burden of gymnastics, but since I have slept on my M Line bed I wake up less stiff and I haven’t had any problems. Also in the Olympics 2012 I brought my M Line topper mattress, so it felt like home."
