Aaron is a very motivated and hard-working athlete and he’s currently training with his local club team Zeewolde Atletiek. He only started training consistently for multi-events about 2 years ago as his club team did not have access to a track before. His training effort paid off and Aaron made lots of progress very quickly. This outdoor season (2023) Aaron became a national champion U18 in pole vault and finished 2nd in the decathlon at the Dutch National Championships U18.As mentioned, Aaron is a very dedicated athlete who always gives a 100% effort both in practice and competition. Although he had a few minor injuries in the past, Aaron always stayed motivated and pushed through. He’s always looking for areas to improve and is eager to learn. These characteristics make Aaron a very coachable athlete. Pole vault and sprinting are his strongest events in the decathlon and Aaron is currently working to improve his javelin, shot put and long jump. He is slowly getting better in these events as he’s putting much effort into improving his weak spots. We strongly believe there is still much room for improvement as Aaron keeps further developing athletically.
Aaron’s best results during his career so far are very recent, as he finished 3rd at Indoor Nationals U18 for multi-events in February 2023. Only two weeks later he won a silver medal at Dutch Junior Nationals for single events with pole vault. The following outdoor season (2023) he added more medals by placing 2nd at the Dutch Outdoor T&F National Championships in the Decathlon. He became National Champion U18 in pole vault a few weeks later.
Aaron’s primary goal in the USA is to get the maximum out of his athletic career, perform at his absolute best, compete at the highest level competition and PB in all his events.
He’s currently enrolled in the highest level of high school (VWO) in The Netherlands and he’s expected to graduate in the Summer of 2025. For more information about his academics, please check out the details section below.
