My name is Eveline Saalberg and I will be your president this year. Something completely different than my study, medicine, but that's what I like about it. Well, let's start with something about myself. I come from a very small town in the neighborhood of Eindhoven. It's called Vessem, 10 points if you know it. I'm 19 years old and I'm in my second year of medicine now. I started athletics in Veldhoven at the association GVAC and I’m still practicing there too. My favorite disciplines are the sprinting ones, like 200 and 400 meters. But I basically like all the technical disciplines, since I do hepthalon as well.
When I moved to Maastricht one year ago, it wasn’t really a surprise that I joined Urus, because I was already doing athletics. I have thought of starting another sport, but I loved athletics too much for that. So I’m a member of Uros for one year now and the association turned out to be really nice, the perfect combination of sports and fun. I really hope that you will all experience that same perfect mixture this year!
I became an active member by joining the competition committee last year. This year I will still be in that one, but also the magazine committee.
I've done athletics for a pretty long time, I think for about 10 years. So now I'm really interested in the other side of the sport, the association behind it. In this year I hope to learn a lot and together with you make the club even more fun than it already was. See you around!
