Lindsay van Zundert Facts
- She had started getting trained in figure skating from the age of 7 and used to compete in domestic Belgian competitions in the early part of her career. During this phase, she also used to train in both France and Belgium.
- Despite it being the custom, she was not selected for the World Junior Figure Skating Championships (2019) after she had won after ‘Gold’ medal at the Dutch Figure Skating Championships (junior tier) in the 2018-19 season.
- During the 2019-20 figure skating season, her last in the junior tier, she had attended several training seminars – in Andorra, France, and the United States. She had also participated in similar local events with the support of Dutch former figure skater and sports presenter Joan Haanappel’s Netherlands Figure Skating Foundation. During this phase, due to a lack of sponsorship, she used to go door-to-door in her hometown of Etten-Leur to collect donations and bottles to fund her career.
- For the next edition of the World Junior Figure Skating Championships (2020), she was selected after a 4th-place finish at the 2020 Bavarian Open. The Dutch Figure Skating Championships, usually a qualifier for the event, was scheduled for the next month but she was selected nonetheless. Interestingly, she would go on to win another ‘Gold’ medal at the Dutch Figure Skating Championships that year.
- As the 2020-21 season of the Junior Grand Prix (JGP), a series of international junior-level competitions organized annually by the International Skating Union (ISU), was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic outbreak, she had opened her season by making her senior international debut at the 2020 CS (Challenger Series) Nebelhorn Trophy, where she was the youngest competitor.
- At the 2021 World Figure Skating Championships, she had finished in 16th place overall. This performance had opened up a berth for a Dutch skater at the 2022 Winter Olympics, the first time that the Netherlands had qualified in the Olympic ladies’ event since 1976.
