Swimming career

At the Dutch National Championships in June 2008, Dekker qualified for the European SC Championships 2008 in Rijeka, Croatia. A week before the European Championships, Dekker broke the national record in the 200 m breaststroke, which was set by Linda Moes during the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. The day after she also lowered the national record in the 100 m breaststroke, held by Moniek Nijhuis since 2007. In Rijeka, Dekker placed 18th in the 100 m breaststroke and 20th in the 200 m breaststroke. At the Amsterdam Swim Cup 2009 she qualified herself for the 2009 World Aquatics Championships in Rome, Italy in the 100 m breaststroke, although she lost her national record to Nijhuis. In the 200 m breaststroke Dekker lowered her own national record by two seconds, but failed to qualify for Rome for this event.
