I am a distance runner of 28 years old and I live in Kapelle-op-den-Bos. I started taking part in international championships at the age of 22, and the Olympic Games in Tokyo were the biggest event I ever had the privilege of taking part in. Until last year, I was still studying for my bachelor's degree in architecture at the LUCA school of arts in Brussels. Since this year, I have been practising my sport professionally under contract at Topsport Belgian Defence. I dream of achieving a top 10 place at a World Championship or Olympic Games.

My favourite Etixx products
Recovery Shake PRO LINE: The ideal recovery shake I need after heavy workouts.
Iron 125 AA: I use it to go on altitude training, where it is crucial not to have an iron deficiency. In addition, the included vitamins ensure good absorption.
Night Protein Shake: Helps me to recover well during the night from a heavy training or competition.

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.Read more
