Judith Pietersen is one of the players of the Dutch Female Volleyball team. We are really proud t0 welcome her as one of the #FITGIRLCODE ambassadors. She is going to tell you all about her fit & healthy lifestyle as a professional athlete. But first, let’s get to know Judith a little bit better.
1. Why do you like writing for #FITGIRLCODE?
I want to convince people how much fun it can be to work out and stay fit and healthy.
2. What do you like so much about volleyball?
I like that it’s a fast-paced team sport. I love to play in a team, because by myself I could never perform like this. Together you can just achieve more, because you motivate each other to make to most of it. And when you’re going through a rough patch, there is always a bunch of girls helping you to pull trough. That’s truly special.
3. What’s your most impressive sport moment until now?
When I started playing for the Dutch Junior Youth team, I went to a foreign tournament and took part in the European Championships for the first time. That was pretty impressive! But what really stood out, were the Youth Olympics. Together with other athletes I lived together in the Olympic village. That was really awesome! And the cherry on top, was that our team also won the bronze medal!
4. Who is your sport hero?
Caroline Wensink (my cousin), she has always been a great example to me. Eventually we managed to stand together on the field. I’m so proud of that!
