"Teun Thomassen MSc. is an athletic development coach of the Dutch Olympic Committee, working at national and Olympic Training Centre Papendal in The Netherlands. He has coached and prepared several European champions, World champions and medal winning athletes and sport teams in the run-up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016 and Tokyo 2021. Track & Field (100m, 200m, 400m and relay), volleyball, rugby and badminton are a few of the sports he coaches or has coached daily at the highest level.
Being a sports fanatic his whole life, Teun was determined to pursue a career in professional sports. He started coaching at age 16 and studied for over 9 years in the field of sports- and human movement sciences.
He had his first elite-level coaching experience at the New South Wales Institute of Sports in Sydney. It was during this period that he met Frans Bosch, who was lecturing at his university. Teun and Frans have been working together ever since. After graduating cum laude from university with a Bachelor’s – and a few years later with a Master’s degree, he started to work full time in professional sports.
During the past 10 years, Teun continued his education in specializing in the field of movement analysis, injury prevention and the practical application of modern ideas of motor control and learning into training. In this role, he provides courses, presentations and consultancy for sports professionals, clubs and universities. For instance, he assisted Frans Bosch during the preparation of the Japanese national rugby team for the 2015 World Cup, in which South Africa was defeated.
