Sport: Triathlon
Nationality: Dutch
Quote: ''Work Hard''
Goal: Olympics

Ever since I was a child, I have loved sports.

I started playing football when I was four years old. Β Three years later I started to swim next to my football training. I could combine the two sports pretty well. In 2017 I wanted to try something new, that’s when Triathlon came on my path. I stopped playing football, and started doing triathlon. Every year I got better and better and in 2021 I was accepted into the national team of the Dutch triathlon. It became my passion and my life. I have dedicated myself completely to triathlon and I am doing everything I can to make my dream of the Olympic Games come true. 2023 was a breaktrough season where I put my name somehow on the map with a podium finish at u23 Worlds and some eye catching performances at the highest level in our sport.
