Hi! My name is Peter Michael. I am a Kiwi (New Zealander) Ice Speed Skater living in Heerenveen, Netherlands. I am a full-time athlete, training on average twice daily. My goal is to win an Olympic Medal at the Winter Olympics, and I need your help to turn this into a reality.
I am a 12 time World Champion in Inline Skating (4X Junior, 8X Senior), who then jumped over to Long Track Ice Speed Skating. The reason for this was that my dream was to become an Olympic medallist. So two years after my last Inline world title of 2016 I was competing in the 2018 Olympics and attained two fourth places. This was not enough, and so I thought that I was on track to reach my goal at the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its implications on the sport as well as contracting Corona myself I did not achieve my goals this time round.
So the road continues… I have just started on my path for the next 4 years with a new training plan and vision to prepare for the 2026 Olympics in Milan.
Being a Kiwi (New Zealander), and training full time abroad can be very hard, and I have to overcome many obstacles on my way. This is made easier by my fans and supporters.
Paying it forward… Being a part of the YAM (Young Athlete Masterclasses) initiative. With YAM we aim to give back to the youth, our future champions. We do this by providing masterclass sessions focused on technical improvement of their technique and training for Inline and Ice Speed Skating. I strongly believe in giving back.
To excel… I need to be constantly pushing my limits. I am ready to work hard, but at the same time, I know that the road to success will be costly. By supporting me today, you are investing in something bigger than just a fundraiser. You’re changing my life.
Support me… Logo sponsorship options are available on my New Zealand as well as on my Dutch Team A6 race suits and attire.
Thank you for your support! Let’s do this!!!
