PERSONAL

Family: Parents Leo and Gerda Schrijver… Older brother Roy, younger brothers Jay and Eric… Getting into the Sport: Began rowing at age 18… Had played lots of sports in high school but wanted to try something new… Met the head coach at Brock, Peter Somerwil, who was very enthusiastic that he try out; that energy made him be impulsive and give it a try… After his first speed burst in an eight shell he had butterflies and was hooked.… Has wanted to row for Canada since watching his first Olympic race on YouTube after joining the novice rowers at Brock… Outside Interests: Graduated from Brock University in 2015 with Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology… Odds and Ends: Favourite motto: “If it was easy everyone would do it”… Inspired by 2012 Olympic champion Mahé Drysdale because he has struggled through adversity and dominates and teammate Conlin McCabe because he has accelerated through the national program… Before a race tries to make eye contact with the opposition and wish them luck at the start…  Has ‘lucky socks’ but there are a few that get cycled through for hygiene purposes… Nickname: Ivan, Drago, Dulph…
