TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State track and field coach Bob Braman added another key piece to the Noles distance crew with the signing of Emmy van den Berg.
“Emmy is one of the best young runners in Europe. She’ll be an immediate impact for both our cross country and track programs.” Head Coach Bob Braman said.
Van den Berg is from Nijmegen, Netherlands, and has had great success representing her home country both on the cross country course and on the track. She is a very diverse runner who has competed internationally in the 800m run, the 1500m run and the 3000m run. Van den Berg ran a personal best last June in the 3000m run with an impressive time of 9:29.88. She also broke her personal best in the 1500m run at the Next Generation Athletics competition where she ran a 4:23.35. This past December, van den Berg finished 11th at the U20 European Cross Country Championships. Van den Berg is also very impressive in the classroom boasting a 4.0 GPA and is in her second year of medicine school on the university level. Upon her arrival to Tallahassee, she plans to major in psychology.
