I am a fanatical triathlete who is both active and a coach to triathletes on the side (DVO Coaching). Etixx supports me with top-quality (sports) nutrition to improve my performance. I have a range of Etixx products to choose from before, during and after a training session/race so I can always give my body the product it needs.

My favourite Etixx products
The Energy Nougat Sport Bar during training is just delicious! In addition, I use the Etixx Isotonic a lot during training. After a strenuous training session I often take the Recovery Shake PRO LINE or Recovery Sport Bar.

Then I made the switch to CrossFit and since a year also weightlifting. I live for sport, also academically and really any sport can fascinate me. I have big ambitions for the future and I am determined to achieve them one by one.Read more
After a (youth) career in athletics, I switched to the Belgian bobsleigh team. After a few years, I retrained from brakewoman to pilot, while also completing my Masters in physiotherapy. In 2015, I was employed part-time by Sport Flanders as pilot and I am now about to start my 10th bobsleigh season. Qualifying for the Olympic Winter Games in 2018 was an amazing feeling and made me dream of doing more in 2022, in Beijing. I now practise my sport full time, while also being a proud Godmother to my nephew, the apple of my eye. I am very proud to be part of the Etixx ambassadors team, a super-talented and motivated group of athletes and sports enthusiasts. Being supported by such a professional company with good-quality, clean products gives me an extra push to achieve my dream of a top result in Beijing 2022!Read more
