Kim states for you:
"Hi!I am Kim van 't Verlaat, 17-year-old triathlete and living in Spijkenisse. Sports has already been taught me from an early age. From my 7th I started atletics at 'Spark', a athletics club 4 kilometers from our house, how ideal! It started with some relay, high jump and skull.Around my 10th I knew that walking more was something for me. In the winter months I enjoyed crossing and in the summer I wanted to do the running parts. Eventually my brother Joey - just like my father - became a member of the Triathlon Association Spijkenisse (TVS'90). After I decided to combine cycling with athletics first, I also wanted to become a member of TVs'90 on my 12th. So I did the cycling and triathlon together until my 14th, but I still went to the triathlon. My mother also became a member and so we have become a real "triathlonfamily"! Now, about 4 years after joining TVs'90, my parents do Long Distance triathlons and my brother Joey and I will come together in the Eredivisie next season.I am currently training at TVs'90, I can train the swimming in the mornings at Zwemvereniging de Kempvis, where tempo and endurance training goes together with technology and cosiness. Very important if you have to get out at 5 o'clock in the morning
