In which a little country can be great

That Belgium is top for chocolates and beer is widely known. But there are a lot of things in which we are equally great!

Did you know, for instance, that Belgium - and more precisely Flanders - is the biggest seller of frozen vegetables? They are especially liked in the Middle East. The area around Roeselaere is a concentration of plans where vegetables are deep frozen and put into packages or boxes... Which is one of the reasons why the most beautiful vegs can never be found in any of our shops.

Last weekend gymnast Nina Derwael got a bronze medal in the WC Gymnastics, for her exercise on the bridge. This thanks to an excellent organisation that cherishes talents. We can hope now that Belgium will be counted among those countries who go for the medals in future years, because we have other great gymnasts.

Also in tennis we're doing well. David Goffin is now a top ten player and will probably compete in the Masters. And don't forget, the Belgian tennis team is playing the Davis Cup Final next month, against France. A victory in sight?

And of course we have a great soccer team. Most of its members play in foreign clubs where they have a star role. Who doesn't know De Bruyne, Fellaini, Mertens, Lukaku, ...? And the ambition of this team is to win the cup in the coming world championship soccer.
