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.


My disciplines

  • Running -> Atletiekvereniging de Keien (De Keien Athletics Club)

Number of hours’ training per week

6 hours 
 

"Never Give UP!
Keep Moving Forward!"

My favourite Etixx products

I use the Magnesium Instant Sticks almost every day for good recovery, along with the Recovery Shake PRO LINE. Collagen Complex is also an essential part of this. Since my injury, I use this either in my shake or in a glass of water to maintain my tendons with the right protein and vitamin C. For strenuous training, I also use the Arginine 1000 pills so that I get less tired.


My greatest sporting achievements 

Silver medal in the National Championship half marathon women’s masters (2018)


My personal records

  • 3000m: 00:10:35
  • 5km:00:18:45
  • 10km: 00:38:29

  • 21km: 01:29.45


My #GiveItYourAll moment in 2021

I would love to run in another National Championship again. On the track or on the road for a half marathon. Unfortunately there is no date set yet.

Athletics - I am a 400 m runner and Belgian Cheetah (4x400m) with a few years of bad luck and injuries behind me. The Etixx products help during everyday recoveries and provide the necessary supplements for a top athlete, but also helped during my rehabilitation. The Etixx range is very broad and comprises everything, for every possible sports discipline. As a top athlete, you are also checked regularly for doping, so it’s great that. with Etixx, I don't have any concerns about that with their ‘Informed Sport’ quality label.

Bobsleigh - 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!
