Jinte started doing track & field at a very young age. She used to do a lot distance running in addition to her heptathlon training. Regardless of her talent as a mid-distance athlete, she fell in love with the heptathlon which is her main event nowadays. In the heptathlon she’s currently ranked 17th U18 in The Netherlands and finished 3rd at junior Nationals before.
As soon as Jinte decided to focus more on the heptathlon she made lots of progress very quickly. Nevertheless, she still is a strong distance runner which is her strongest event of the heptathlon, together with long jump. Jinte had various successes throughout her career so far including national titles in the 600m indoors and XC.
Jinte’s best qualities are the running events and jumps. She has a good stable run-up in the long jump that contributes to her performance in this event. In addition, she is a very motivated athlete who’s dedicated to work hard and get the most out her athletic career. Jinte is currently working to improve her technique in the throwing events. She is practicing more in shot put and javelin to accomplish this. We strongly believe there is still much room for improvement, especially when she gets more professional coaching.
