I started athletics at ARV ILION at the age of five. Here I have always enjoyed training and getting acquainted with the
various athletic events.
I combined this with hockey until I was 15.
When I stopped playing hockey I started training at ATR (Athletic Training Center Rotterdam).
At ATR I became acquainted with hurdling and with international youth
After the games in Tokyo I made the choice to go to Papendal.
Since October 2021 I have been training under the guidance of Bart Bennema.
In addition to athletics, I study Human Movement Sciences at the VU University Amsterdam.
I hope to complete my bachelor’s degree as soon as possible and to be able to fully focus on my athletics career.
