I am Jelle Geens, and I participate in triathlon. I am the first and still the only Belgian to ever win a World Triathlon Championship Series. Of the three disciplines, my favorite is running, especially long-distance tempo runs.
Triathlon --> Triatlon Vlaanderen
Number of hours’ training per week
"In it to win it"
My favourite Etixx products
I use the Double Carb Energy Gel; it has a delicious taste and contains a high amount of carbs, which is beneficial for long training sessions.
My greatest sporting achievements

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
