Jony Heerink (NLD)
Every day 26 km up and down to school, three or four times a week water polo and running on the spy shooting range. Jony has been practicing triathlon since high school.
After having tasted a little at international ETU races in recent seasons; Jony succeeded in the front this year with a 4th place in Wuustwezel and 9th place in Holten. She was allowed to race for the first time in World Cups and start at the European Championship for elite athletes in Glasgow.
When it comes out, Jony is very happy to race the Eredivisie Team Competition competitions, where she already won 4x national championships with Hellas (and teammate of Channah ) and in France for the Grand Prix duathlon.
Jony and duathlon combine the triathlon, where she won the Dutch title this year at the sprint distance and became 9th at the World Championship.
In the run-up to the NK Run Bike Run in Spijkenisse, Jony was followed by some students from the Dutch Film Academy. They have made a nice documentary from Jony ..
In 2018 Jony added quite a few victories to her list of achievements, such as winning at the Dutch Championship OD in Veenendaal and in Almere Duin (a total of 3 individual victories in the Eredivisie NTB Team Competitions). Because of her good performances, Jony was also sent, together with Marije Dankelman, to the European Championships Triathlon in Glasgow.
She was also nominated in 2018 by the Dutch Triathlon Association as a triathlete of the year 2018, and was named Sportswoman of the Year of the city of Amersfoort .
