On June 8, the moment had arrived. A day that will be etched into the history books of pigeon racing. JOH van Belzen and Son from Arnemuiden achieved an unparalleled feat in the national race from Fontenay, France.

The competition was immense:
6031 pigeons from 309 fanciers from Section 1 Zeeland competed for the title. But it was the Van Belzen's who returned home with a brilliant victory. The conditions were far from ideal. The pigeons were released at 07:45 in Fontenay, with a moderate southwest wind of force 3 and a temperature of 13 degrees Celsius. The race distance was 379 kilometers to the lofts in Arnemuiden, a challenge for any pigeon. Yet this posed no problem for the 38 pigeons entered by JOH van Belzen  and Son.

At 12:10:55, the first pigeon landed, NL.22-2200251, a 2-year-old cock. With an incredible speed of 1426 meters per minute, this champion flew straight to victory. It was a moment of pure triumph and joy for the Van Belzen’s and their supporters.
But the success did not end with this one pigeon. Of the 38 pigeons entered, 21 won prizes. This demonstrates that the Van Belzen’s know how to prepare their pigeons to perfection and peak at the right moment. The complete result of these superstars is as follows: 1 - 34 - 154 - 205 - 313 - 370 - 373 - 383 - 577 - 578 - 590 - 617 - 930 - 1075 - 1166 - 1259 - 1307 - 1443 - 1766 - 1771 - 1927.
