Remember those athletes who danced/pantomimed their events during the march of athletes during the opening ceremony? Well, two of them are competing this week. BTW, all times are in London time.

Reginald de Windt, also from Curaçao, competes in the 81kg division for Judo, which is on the 31st. It is an all-day affair, so you may want to stay put. de Windt’s opening match is against Russia’s Ivan Nifontov and is at 10:47 am.
There is a third athlete from Curaçao, and that is Liemarvin Bonevacia. He competes in the Men’s 400m, and the 1st round begins on Saturday, August 4th at 10:35 am. Survive that, go to the Semis the following day at 8:40 pm.
