From Cancer Survivor To Olympic Gold Medalist
Maarten van der Weijden won gold medal in menmen’s 10km open water marathon in Beijing Olympic 2008. On top of that, he is also a multi world champion for all events up to 25km. But surprisingly, 7 years ago, Maarten van der Weijden was dignosed with leukaemia. It took him 2 years to fight the battle with cancer of the bone marrow and white blood cells, and he came back.
Bravo to you, Maarten!
