Lara Frijters is 20 years old (almost 21) and was born and raised in Eindhoven. 

She studies health sciences, and since she has an interest in psychology, she is following the mental health track. 

She has danced all her life, since she was 3 years old, until she moved to Maastricht, where she now is taking a break in the domain. 

She started with athletics at the age of 8 and began as a mid-long distances runner. Due to injuries she had to switch to shorter distances and oriented herself towards the technical events, of which hurdles is her favorite. But that did not stop her to recently train more her shot-put skills, and she seems to improve quickly and appreciate this other event more and more. 

But she does not stop there, she usually goes to the gym a few times a week, and switched to home workouts and started to go on rides with her mountain bike to keep her busy during the lockdown.

She is currently also training the children from Atletiek Maastricht, so she is now taking on a bigger challenge and will soon be training the bigger kids of Uros!

PS: she also likes reading, so if someone knows a good book or wants a biking buddy you should hit her up!
