Nienke Brinkman is a professional runner from the Netherlands sponsored by Nike.

She had an incredible 2021 season, placing second in the Golden Trail Series, winning two stages with course records (Chiemgau Trail Run and Skyrhune) and setting the second fastest time ever at Sierre-Zinal. This year she shocked the world with a 2h22'51 road marathon in Rotterdam, a national record and one of the greatest performances ever by a European runner (and of course an Olympic standard by several minutes!).

Nienke signed a contract with Nike at the end of 2021 and she's part of NN Running Team, arguably the best long distance running team in the world. We discuss her training, how she balances running on the trails and on the roads, how her goals have changed after the breakthrough in Rotterdam, her olympic dreams. Get inspired!
