Personal life

She is married to ex-goalkeeper Henk Timmer but they are currently separated. She was previously married to her former coach Peter Mueller.

Speed skating career

In 1999 she won the 1000 m in the World Single Distance Championships and in 2004 became world champion in the sprint. In 2006, she won the 1000 m at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. This made her the first skater from the Netherlands to win a gold medal at two different Winter Games.

On 13 November 2009, at a World Cup speedskating event in Heerenveen, Netherlands, Timmer sustained breaks in her heel bone when she crashed after Chinese skater Yu Jing fell in front of her during a 500-meter race. Because of the crash, Timmer did not defend her Olympic title in the Vancouver Olympics in February 2010.
