Schippers won gold medals in the heptathlon at the 2010 World Junior Championships in Athletics and 2011 European Athletics Junior Championships. A few years later, she won gold in the 100 m and bronze in the long jump at the 2013 European Athletics U23 Championships.
In 2011 in Daegu she broke the Dutch national record in the 200 m. She is co-record holder in the 4 × 100 m relay. She improved the 200 m record during the 2014 edition of the heptathlon at the Hypo-Meeting in Götzis, her time of 22.35 being one of the best 200m performances ever in a heptathlon. Her success at the 2014 European Athletics Championships, where she completed the sprint double, prompted discussion over her long-term prospects and whether she should focus on sprinting or continue her career in heptathlon. In June 2015 Schippers announced via Twitter that she would focus on sprinting in the run up to the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing and the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
