Thanks!!

6 november 2017

Wow, all your support has been overwhelming!
After my breakdown about the expenes to enter the World Championships, I was advised to start a crowdfunding campaign.
The road to the World Championships isn’t always easy. Sport is something you CAN do and that’s a gift, a privilege. I’m grateful and glad I can. If you want and you can, you’ll get excited, loose and you’ll have positive tension. You’ll be intrinsically motivated and then you’re performing and surprising yourself. That’s when you’re mentally strong!

Sometimes it’s mentally difficult, sometimes physical. This year it was mostly financial difficult. Partly because the World Championships were so far away.

That’s why I’m more than grateful to you. Thanks to your support I got the chance to take three jerseys and a bronze medal home. In total you donated € 1,082, – for which 1082 times thanks!
