Traffic manager

Slowly rolled in.

That pretty much sums up how I ended up in the organization of the EDC.

When our children started diving, we took a look. This is because this is of course great fun, such a big competition in “our own bath”.

A few years later I started as a speaker. Even more fun than watching from the stands. Nice to see how such a competition really works. Also nice because you notice that the diving world is actually one big family.

I sometimes describe the EDC as a short vacation: 4 days at subtropical temperatures in good company by the pool …

Two years ago, our tournament director was looking for a traffic manager to handle the little things that fell between the big organizational tasks. Because co-organizing seemed like a lot of fun, but I also really wanted to remain active as a speaker, this was the ideal task for me.

Unfortunately, the EDC cannot take place in February 2021, but of course we have something special in store. We are all going to look ahead to our 22nd edition in a very nice way: EDC2022!
