Nadine Broersen is a Dutch track and field athlete, specializing in the heptathlon and high jump. She holds the current national record in the high jump with 1.94m. She is the 2014 World Indoor pentathlon champion. She competes for the track and field club AV Sprint in Breda.
Lets get to know her a little more.
Your good performance in three essential events – 100 metres hurdles, high jump and the javelin throw – motivated you to specialise in the heptathlon, despite your fear for the 800 metres. What motivated you to finally enter in heptathlon?
Well, doing just one event would have been boring for me. I just love the challenge of mastering the different events. Even the 800, it’s very demanding, but there is something heroic about running it after two hard days of competing. It is not easy, but I don’t like easy. And the heptathlon is the ultimate athletic test. Strength, speed, agility, endurance, they all need to be extremely well developed. There really is nothing like it, that’s why I like it.
