Other informationMOVING ON
She competes in marathon skating after retiring from speed skating. "I no longer have that ambition, I don't have to prove anything anymore. Who knows, some good things may happen, but I'm not at all concerned with that now. It might just be that I am going to coach somewhere, but I am going to see that in the near future. I think it is scary because I now have no structure anymore. Everything was always skating and now I am on my own. I am going now do something very new and that makes me very vulnerable."
