Jelle Geens

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.


My discipline

Triathlon --> Triatlon Vlaanderen

Number of hours’ training per week

30 h

 

"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 

  • Double winner of the World Triathlon Championship Series
  • Podium finisher at the European Championships
  • And two-time 4th place finisher at the World Championship
