Young lions Tibo De Smet and Ruben Verheyden flourish at sun-drenched KBC Nacht

The 43rd edition of the KBC Nacht did not disappoint. During a sun-drenched athletics evening in Heusden-Zolder, Tibo De Smet hit the jackpot of Belgian performances. De Smet dropped below 1’45 in the 800m and is only the fifth Belgian to do so. Ruben Verheyden nicely ducked under the European Championships limit in the 1500m. Rani Rosius and Noor Vidts also put in a good performance.
