Sport Specific Information
Reason for choosing this sportShe tried skating at school because she thought it was exciting. "I originally went to long track speed skating and did short track following a few workouts to improve my elbow technique. A few years later I switched to short track completely. We did short track with school and Daan [Breeuwsma] had arranged better facilities for me. From that moment on, I've been getting more and more involved."  
Name of coachJeroen Otter [national], NED  
When and where did you begin this sport?She began speed skating as a child. She took up short track in 2009.
