Ep. 18 The Normal World of Ben van der Burg (Dutch)

In this Dutch episode I spoke with Ben van der Burg, who was an elite athlete speed skater in The Netherlands. We talked about his career, the runup to becoming second in the 1990 all round world championships, getting injured and how he experienced life after he quit speed skating. Nowadays Ben works amongst other things for Triple, an IT-company, BNR nieuwsradio, Tech Podcast and as a freelance journalist.

I hope by sharing this podcast I can help other ex-elite athletes or athletes that are going to retire. I also hope that this podcast will help me heal in the sense that I can create something I wish was there when I quit my elite career. Enjoy listening!
