Seed Processing Holland is not only investing in new machines and new technology to innovate, we also stimulate various ambitious junior athletes or teams by sponsoring them. One of them is Tom Egbers who has the official status of a high potential javelin-thrower and is aiming to be selected for the Olympics of 2024.
He started with athletics when he was 6. When he was 15 he specialised successfully in javelin throwing. Since then he broke several records and in 2016 he threw the best distance ever of a 16-year old on a Dutch championship of 70.51 meters. Due to these and other outstanding results he became a high potential and is now getting guidance of the best professional coaches at Papendal, the largest elite sports training centre in the Netherlands.
We wish him another great season and will follow him on his road towards the Olympics of 2024.
