Five Erasmus University Rotterdam students will see their dreams come true this summer. They will represent the Netherlands at the Rio Olympics.

The five students are hockey players Marloes Keetels, Larissa Meijer and Seve van Ass, equestrian athlete Merel Blom and track cyclist Joost van den Burg.

In addition, two EUR alumni, rowers Maaike Head and Mitchel Steenman, will be in the mix for the much-coveted Olympic medals in Rio.
