Dear Uros members,
My name is Keanne Panis and I will be taking care of the PR & sponsorship of Uros for the upcoming academic year. I am currently 18 years old and in my second year of studying economics and business economics at SBE in Maastricht. I was born in Maastricht but lived in a little village called Lanaken just across the border in Belgium. Lanaken is also where I completed high school and started doing athletics in a club called ATLA at the age of 6 years old.
I immediately fell in love with the sports and started specializing in long jump and sprinting. When I was 12 years old I started to take it more seriously and until I was 17 years old I trained 6 times a week and participated at national championships. When I decided to go to university I knew it was not realistic for me anymore to continue training at this level but I was not ready to say goodbye to athletics just yet and decided I would join Uros. After the first couple of trainings I immediately knew that this was exactly what I was looking for since it is the perfect mixture of fun and sports. For my second year as a student I knew I wanted to do something else besides my studies and decided to get more involved in Uros by being a board member for this year.
I am very excited to be in the board of uros this year as well as being in the competition committee, pr & sponsoring committee and the magazine committee. I hope to all see you at the track to do a nice training together and of course most importantly have a good time together !
See you soon,
