Koen Hijman (NLD)
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Koen Hijman, the 19-year-old triathlete from Boskoop.
In my younger years I was an average athlete in the swimming and running world. Only that all changed after I participated in a talent day at the NTB in 2014 and came to the podium a few times in the Youth & Junior circuit. Because of this I started to train seriously for the triathlon.
Since 2016 I started for UnLtd in the First Division and in the RunBikeRun series. In the same year I also started my first International Triathlon competition in Holten with the juniors. Where I have gained a lot of experience as a final year Junior.
In 2018 I will join the Dolfijn Eredivisieteam. I am also going to focus on the ETU circuit.
