Lisa Bruijnincx is 19 years old, and has been rowing at the highest national level for three years. Lisa started rowing at “Roei- en Zeilvereniging Gouda” and developed fast. Very fast. Last summer, Lisa and her crewmate Fine van Westreenen rowed in a double scull boat to win the Worldtitle U19 at the world championships in Tokyo. A fantastic result, and it has whetted their appetite for more. And Lisa has that ambition outlined clearly: “In four years, I want to participate in the Olympic Games in Paris.” This coming year, Lisa wants to make the next big step in realising that ambition. Lisa is a national top talent, who has made her appearance at international level and wants to develop into an international influential player.
