This 35 year old from Uithoorn in The Netherlands is competing in his fourth Olympics, although the first two were as part of the indoor volleyball team. Having teamed up with Richard Schuil following Athens to pursue a career in beach volleyball, the three-time European champion’s Olympic preparations have been going well, clinching gold in the final event in Klagenfurt, Austria before the Games begin. He’ll be hoping his good form continues for the next couple of weeks and scores him a podium finish in London.
