I am originally from the Netherlands and have been swimming competitively since I was 12. My first race was an open water event and even though I stopped after only 200 meters I ended up swimming more and more. This resulted in representing the Netherlands in the European Junior Open Water Swimming Championships for three consecutive years. More recently, I have joined Masters Swimming and have enjoyed workouts in the pool and ocean swims.
