The team of Bob van der Horst, Xela Dafauce Bouzó and Simon van de Fliert was chosen as the SPORTS CHANGE MAKERS representing Europe. All in Team Europe have different backgrounds: Bob and Simon are from the Netherlands, and Xela is from Spain. Moreover, Simon studies computer science, Xela, sports and health science, and Bob, humanities at the University of Hull in the United Kingdom.
The idea came up when the three were watching judo matches. Xela is very familiar with judo, while Bob and Simon were not interested in it because they did not know the rules. Once Xela showed them the rules while watching the matches through the night, however, the two became big judo fans.
