I am a distance runner of 27 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.

I am fanatical about everything I do. Once I start something, in sport, at university or anywhere else, I try to do my best. Last year was my first year as an Etixx ambassador and this fits in perfectly with this vision. This year, I have really noticed a big difference when training. I always had the right amount of energy with the Etixx products and the recovery support afterwards was better. Consequently, the quality of my training sessions clearly improved.Read more
