Gideon started his athletic career several years ago. During this time he was still engaged in various events but when he was 15 years old he decided to focus on long jump and triple jump primarily. He made lots of progress very quickly and had many successes throughout his short career already. Gideon was ranked 3rd (triple jump) and 5th (long jump) U16 outdoors in 2022.
Major strengths are his motivation and discipline. Gideon always gives a 100% effort, both in competition and practice. Moreover, he’s a quick learner and a very coachable athlete. As a result of this, Gideon made much progress in a short period of time while training with his local club team Flevo Delta. Areas Gideon is currently working on are his jumping technique and strength. We strongly believe there is still much room improvement, especially considering Gideon started focusing on jumps not that long ago and doesn't have much specific training under his belt yet.
Within only two years of specific training in the jumping events, he already managed to place 3rd and 4th at Nationals outdoors U16 in triple jump and long jump respectively. His athletic goals are to jump over 7 meters in long jump and also improve greatly in triple jump. In the USA Gideon wants to perform at his absolute best for his college track team and get the maximum out of his collegiate career. He wants to PB in all his events across the board and compete at high level competitions.
His current PB’s are:Long jump: 6.04mTriple jump: 11.25m60m: 7,78s100m: 12,51s150m: 19,44s
