DETERMINED, EXPLOSIVE &
ON THE GLOBAL STAGE
As an 8-yearold, Dafne took her first steps towards becoming an athlete at the Hellas club in Utrecht. She was playfully introduced to all the different athletics elements. Her combination of fun, fanaticism and talent made her stand out and she was soon recognised as a potential top talent. At the age of 15, she was offered a place at the prestigious Dutch Olympic Training Centre at Papendal, to be trained and supervised at the highest level.
In the years that followed, Dafne made huge progress and is now a household name in the sports world. With medals at Olympic Games, World and European Championships, the 'Flying Dutch Woman' has joined the world of sprinters that has historically been dominated by American and Caribbean athletes.
In the pressures of her sport and in the ups & downs she experiences, Dafne makes her own choices and is always the one to watch. She’s right there where she needs to be. Determined, uncompromising in her approach and preferably with as much pressure and competition as possible at her side.
