Kai Verbij was born on September 25, 1994 (age 27 years) in Leiderdorp, Netherlands.
Verbij displayed sportsmanship when he found himself matched up with Canada’s Laurent Dubreuil in the men’s 1,000-meter event. Their common goal was to beat the time of Verbij’s compatriot Tim Krol, the gold medal favorite who had posted a monster time of 1:07.92 two pairs earlier.
Verbij, a medal contender himself, got off to a strong start, basically even with Krol’s time entering the final lap, but he had nothing on Dubreuil, who was 0.73 seconds ahead of the leader’s pace and clearly pushing for the gold medal.
