The pink whirlwind

Suzanne Overbeek

She triumphed on the ski slopes at les Deux Alpes. At the Dutch Student Championships at the beginning of February, Wageningen student of Food Technology Michelle Kuiper came first not only in the speed skiing but also in the slalom skiing and the snowboarding.

Michelle even outstripped the fastest of the men at the championships, and can therefore justifiably be pronounced Holland's top student skier. She and her friend Sanne also won the dual slalom dressed in Mega Mindy outfits. 'That evening nearly everyone recognized us as the girls in the pink ski pants who won everything.'
