My Bio (NEW IFBB PRO)
Hi Everybody, It's a pleasure to have you here and I hope you will enjoy what you see. because what you see is what you get!
Well, little Saskia was born on the 17th of april 1979 in a little village called: Dinxperlo. It's in the east of Holland.
Everybody in my family had something to do with sport, my parents, sister en brothers where great swimmers, so was I, but it just wasn't enough for me, so I did more, I also played soccer, horse riding and played tennis. But of course it was too much to go on all my life.
When I was 16 years old I wanted to join the army, and had to do the physical tests. That was my first reason I walked into the gym, I wanted to create some musclepower so they would let me into the army.
I got through the tests and joined the army for almost 6 years but I liked training with weigths so much that I never stopped lifting. I just wanted to go on with bodybuilding and to do that I had to leave the army. Well, so I did.
In 2002 I met a great female bodybuilder, Anja Timmer, who trained me for a couple of years. She teached me a lot and will always be an example to me.
My dreams where coming true, I won some competitons, moved to the Hague where I had the possibility to focus me for 100% at kneet's gym, one of the best hardcore gyms in Holland.
I Became European champion in 2004 and in 2006 I became Vice Ms Universe.
One day I'll hope to get on the Olympia stage as a competitor, and because I think that when you have the strength and power never to give up, everything is possible !
I'll promise you!! In 2007 I will not only get on stage bigger, harder and with a lot more definition but also to get the prices which belong to the best in competition!
Well everybody, thanks for all your support and best wishes for all of you!!!
