It's always hard for me to get my head around how young some of the athletes, actors, etc. are.
Best of luck to him and thanks for posting this.

Bert Blijleven (Editor: maybe the Dutch spelling, which is cool)
It is, and it's often written as a connected "y" with dots over it when in lowercase. The pronunciation is a long I, as in Blyleven. Fun fact: when used at the beginning of a sentence or proper noun, both letters are capitalized, as in IJmuiden, a town near Haarlem in Noord Holland where my grandfather lived until World War II.
