Ep. 9 The Normal World of Nienke de Groot

In this episode of The Normal World, we'll dive into the world of Volleyball. We talk about why she started playing volleyball, how she transferred to Belgium to play semi-professional for a year, and how she dealt with the struggles of deciding whether or not to quit volleyball when she moved abroad for 6 months. 

I’m Annaleid Bakker and welcome to the normal world of Nienke de groot.

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!
