Can’t wait for the bobsleigh and skeleton season to start!

IBSF Floor Manager Winterberg

Normally summer is the season I love the most, but at this point I can say I’m really looking forward to winter as well! The first IBSF Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup of this season will be in Sigulda, Letland, in December! A new track for me as IBSF floor manager, so pretty excited! After Sigulda we head to Winterberg, and in January I will be at the World Cups in Altenberg, Innsbruck and St. Moritz! In February we’re heading to a place I’ve been dreaming about since I watchRead More

Managing the first ever official mixed zone at the World Championships Sailing. Challenge!

Excited to share the new challenge I had last summer: I was coordinating the mixed zone activities during the Sailing World Championships Aarhus 2018. Three years after working in Aarhus for the Worlds Nacra17, the Olympic mixed multihull Class, I’m was back in Denmark and I loved it! I kept in touch with the people I worked with ever since and was really lucky to be able to join them for the Sailing World Championships Aarhus 2018 from 31 July – 13 August.

Whaaa!!! This was my day at the office: Practice Race with Bessie and Team Sun Hung Kai Scallywag

Aan het roer van Scallywag

Not a bad day at the office:-) Sometimes you get offers you can’t refuse. Like when you receive an email from the Scallywags if you want to come sailing cause you work with Bessie to fix all her media stuff, so cool! And it was way cooler than I could have ever imagined… In the first photo we’re quickly going through the media schedule before the party started, we got second in the practice race in Scheveningen. Thank you Team Sun Hun Kai Scallywag! Smiles for days!

Our team at the Olympic Sliding Center in PyeongChang 2018

At the Olympics in PyeongChang I was spotter and floor manager at the Olympic Sliding Center, used for all bobsleigh, skeleton and luge events. We worked from early mornings till late at night, sometimes in -26 with strong winds! But what an experience to be part of this international team here at the venue in Korea!

When working as floor manager for the International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation I also coordinate the content for social media on site. When I manage to get the athletes in the winners box in time for the live flower ceremony for the world feed and no unexpected things occur, I’ve got time to take some photos for social media as well. On this picture, taken in Königssee, I was caught in the act by Getty Image photographer Alexander Hassenstein.

My last sunny stop before heading to snowy and cold work venues for the bobsleigh & skeleton World Cup season and the Winter Olympics in Korea, was in Spain! I was at the start of the Volvo Ocean Race in Alicante on 22 October onboard the Flyer, together with our guests from MAPFRE, we saw the Volvo Ocean Racers leave for the first leg from Alicante to Lisbon.
