Until the age of 21, swimming was just a hobby for freestyle Belgian sprinter Pieter Timmers, who decided to focus on swimming full-time after his studies. The decision paid off and three years later, at the 2012 European short course Swimming Championship in France, he scooped silver in the 200m Freestyle and Bronze in the 4 x 50m freestyle relay. Better was yet to come, with an Olympic silver in Rio during the 2016 Olympic Games – Belgium’s first Olympic medal in 20 years. Timmers is a holder of multiple Belgian national records.
