Obstacle course racing, survival run and athletics - I am an enthusiastic girl who is bursting with energy. I am a student of Tourism & Recreation Management. I love adventurous challenges. I have only recently become an Etixx ambassador so my experience is still very limited, but I think the Etixx Ambassadors Team is fantastic!


My disciplines

  • Obstacle course racing -> Invictus OCR Team Belgium
  • Survivalrun
  • Athletics ((middle) long distance and cross) -> Koninklijke Racing Club Gent


Number of hours’ training per week

15 - 17 hours

 

"Hard work beats talent
when talent doesn’t work."

My favourite Etixx products

I like using the Recovery Shake PRO LINE before or after strength training. This ensures the circulation of amino acids, providing more chance of muscle growth. I like to use the Isotonic Drink Energy Gels during long training sessions of over 2 hours.


My personal record

Bronze at the World Championships 13-19y (2019)

Running, Cycling and fitness - I am a happy Brabant girl, who swapped going to the pub for running. After I beat breast cancer in 2011, I made a change of direction. It seems it was a good decision as I’m still very passionate about it. Hopefully, there will be many more great times over the various distances; I actually enjoy all distances. I am now back on the road after an injury. I am very happy that Etixx has continued to believe in me, and with their products I am convinced that there are still many good things ahead in terms of running. I am very grateful for this wonderful support, it helps me to recover faster and be able to train harder so I can reach my goals.

Running, cycling, strength and swimming - 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.
