When and where did you begin this sport?
He took up the sport at age six at Ed-Vo swimming club in Volendam, Netherlands.
Why this sport?
"I used to play football, but I didn't like it that much and I wasn't very good at it. I was also taking swimming classes and I was good at that. Month after month I got all my certificates. Then my swimming teacher told me to visit the local swimming club, Ed-Vo. That's how it started."
