Martijn ist die erste niederländische Verpfichtung für das Team Karella! Die wichtigesten Fragen an unseren „Neuen“ findet ihr hier im Interview:
Wann hast du angefangen Dart zu spielen und wie bist du dazu gekommen?
As a little boy (now 31 years old) I already had an electronic dartboard (soft tip) in my room. After I saw Raymond van Barneveld become World Champion on TV at the BDO in 1998, I always said ‚I want that later too‘. From that moment on I switched to steeltip.
Was war dein schönstes Erlebnis in der Dart-Welt bisher?
My best experience so far in the dart world is attending the PDC World Cup in 2014. I saw the match of Michael van Gerwen in the 3rd round against Terry Jenkins and that was really goosebumps to be in a to be a full house. From that moment on I picked up darts again after a few years.
Auf welchen Erfolg bist du besonders stolz?
That after years of playing darts at a ‚recreational‘ level, I now have the opportunity to further develop myself at Mach Darts Limited management in darts with, of course, beautiful material sponsored by KarellaDarts. Of course I hope for a golden future.
Welches Turnier möchtest du unbedingt mal gewinnen?
Everyone dreams of one day winning the World Darts Championship, so do I. At the moment that is of course not realistic and I would love to win a Challenge tour tournament.
Lieber Steel- oder Soft-Dart?
That’s an easy question. 100% steel darts.
Wie viel trainierst du in der Woche?
Before my daughter was born in April of this year, I trained over 10/12 hours a week. From that moment on it has become less, but after a few months we have found our rhythm at home. I now have some more time to train and hope to even get to 15 training hours per week.
