Interesting interview with Sloëtjes in a Dutch television program. She had a very good time with Vakifbank, but it's also a relief she can leave the club because of the immense pressure. If the pressure would be less, she could have more fun in playing volleyball. She thought she would get used to the pressure, but she never could. She still has sleepless nights. Sloëtjes wants to quit after Tokyo 2020. Maybe she takes one year off and than play one more year, because of the WCH 2022 in the Netherlands.
Beliën enjoys to play and live in Istanbul, so I think the rumours of her transfering to Galatasaray could be true. She wants to improve every day. So when she isn't satisfied with her block, she stays after the training to get better at it. It's a pleasure for her to watch good middle blockers, so she can learn a lot from them. At this moment she likes the most to see Rasic and Danesi play.
