Rem was an excellent skier.
In 1958 hij finished second by the Dutch Youthchampionships.
In 1959 they expected that he could be the number one.
Unfortunately it went wrong on Saturday, January 3, 1959 at his last training run.
In his run he knocked over a slalomstick, somewhat happens numerous times a day, only
this time the stick, a for that time common wooden one with a rough sharpen point, came
upside down in the snow. He could not evading the stick and the stick pierced through him
at his gastric region. Due to the punch he flew through the air and came a couple of meters
further on down on his back through which his legs became paralysed. He lay down at the
Hahnenkamm mountain in the snow and was fully conscious, and he was able to pull out
the stick by himself but could not transported to the hospital in St. Johann because te two
ambulances already had patients with broken legs to deliver. But he was operated that
same day, later followed by a second operation to get rid off an infection. Unfortunately,
because of this, he was too weakened and died, in the presents of his parents, 10 days
after his accident.
