Hailing from the Netherlands, Dafne Schippers emerged as an athletic sensation, leaving an admirable legacy in track and field before retiring in 2023. Her prowess in both sprinting and multi-discipline events propelled her to the front of global athletics. Her spectacular sprint in the 200 meters, clocked at 21.63 seconds, still remains as the European record. In addition to these, she has secured records in her homeland in events like the 100 meters, long jump, 60 meters indoor, and the 4×100 meters relay. Her achievements were recognized when she was crowned European Athlete of the Year in both 2014 and 2015.

Utrecht is the Dutch city where Schippers was born in 1992. This was also where her athletic journey began. Competing at the Hellas club at a mere age of nine, she already had shown glimpses of her extraordinary talent. She got global recognition in 2013 when she clinched top honors in the 100m and showcased her versatility with a bronze medal in long jump at the European U23 Championships. Later that year, she clinched the bronze medal at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow, in one of the most challenging track and field events, named heptathlon.

The year 2014 was another monumental year for Schippers. At the European Championships, she won gold medals in the 100m and 200m races. This success resulted in conversations about her future whether she would focus on sprinting or continue with heptathlon. The answer came in 2015, as Schippers took to social media and declared her commitment to sprinting, with sights set on the upcoming global meets. Her season started spectacularly with a win in Prague’s European Indoor Championships. This momentum carried her through to the World Athletics Championships in Beijing, where she raced to silver in the 100m and broke records with a gold in the 200m.

However, the Rio Olympics in 2016 presented a roller-coaster of emotions. While she was expected to recreate the magic of Fanny Blankers-Koen, a sprint legend from 1948, Schippers managed a fifth-place finish in the 100m and a credible silver behind Elaine Thompson in the 200m. She then sought the expertise of Rana Reider, a U.S.-based coach. However, despite a successful title defense in London’s 2017 World Championships, it wasn’t convincing for Dafne Schippers. By the end of 2018, seeking a return to form, Schippers reunited with her former coach, Bart Bennema.
