Dear Uros athletes,

My name is Jannes Timmers and this year, I will take over the role of secretary. I’m 19 years old and I’m in my second year of Economics & Business economics, specialisation Economics & Management of Information. I was born and raised in the Brabantine Erp, famous for nothing actually except for Anky van Grunsven and 7th Sunday.

I’m a member of Uros for almost a year now. However, unlike many others, I haven’t been doing athletics since my date of birth. Instead, I used to swim a lot and I even played Hockey for a small year, but that wasn’t what I wanted to do. At high school, we often did athletics which I always really enjoyed. That is why I became a member of Uros, because at Uros the combination of sports and ‘gezelligheid’ (the only word that cannot be translated to English) is optimal. Last year, I have been busy with the Activity Committee and the Inkom Committee which I really enjoyed. This year, I will be busy again with the Activity Committee and the Alumni Committee.

At Uros, you can find me mostly in the technical group. In addition, it looks like we’re going to have more technical athletes this year so that’s a good sign.

I’m looking forward to taking over the role of secretary. We are going to make sure that also this year is going to be a success for Uros!
