I am a 25-year-old marathon runner with very big ambitions. Since the beginning of 2022, I have been living 100% as a professional athlete because of my contract with Topsport Defence. This gives me an excellent opportunity to get the most out of my sports career! I am also active as a coach within the Altius project of Runners' Lab Athletics Team and I enjoy delving into the world of stocks and real estate.

My favourite Etixx products
In the past I have used both Beta Alanine Slow Release and Iron 125 AA. These products have helped me get strong results every time. Despite having a sensitive stomach and intestines, these supplements have never hindered me.

(Half) marathon, triathlon and yoga
Sport has been a key part of my life since I was a child. I spent years searching for the sport that would give me the most satisfaction. From dance, to judo, even to gymnastics and fitness. But nothing could match the feeling that running still gives me after all these years, time after time. I have found my release, my passion. A way to forget everything for a while and to prove to myself that I can do more than I ever thought I could.Read more
