Mark de Jonge’s first goal in sprint kayak was simply to stay upright- a feeling that all our new paddlers experience! Nearly two decades later, Mark is one of the best sprint paddlers in the entire world, winning two World Championships, a bronze medal in his Olympic debut in London 2012, and many more international medals. Mark calls Maskwa Aquatic Club his home, and can often be seen around the club, making time for even the youngest of paddlers. We are proud of you, Mark!
