Jan Jonk (NLD)
My name is Jan Jonk. I am 26 years old and I am now working on Triathlon for 3 years. After 9 years of football, 6 years MMA I made the switch to Triathlon in 2015. That same year I finished my first triathlon with Ironman70.3 Turkey. Since then I have done competitions both at home and abroad. After a long injury from October 2016 to September 2017 I could finally train fully and I moved to Limburg to better prepare myself in connection with the various fields and height differences.
This season has resulted in a 4th place at the OD at Triamsterdam and a nice time of 4:40:34 at Ironman70.3 Elsinore. In the longer term I would like to qualify for the Ironman World Cup first before I switch to the entire distance.
In the coming season I focus on the OD and the 70.3 distances and I am aiming to get at least 1 stage spot on an OD. The two major competitions that are on the program are Ironman70.3 Luxembourg on 17 June and again the Challenge Almere Middle Distance on 14 September 2019.
In addition to exercising, I work as an electric motor Breedveld and Schröder.
