Rowing - I played football in the Dutch Premier League until I was 18. I found out I was talented at other sports (running, cycling etc.) and discovered rowing through my college. I have now been doing the sport for 3 years indoors and another 1 year on the water. After becoming world champion in indoor rowing, my main goal is the Paris Olympic Games in2024 (on the water). I am now entering my second year as an Etixx ambassador. I am very happy to represent a brand that, just like me, always aims to be the best!

My discipline

Rowing -> Belgian sharks

Number of hours’ training per week

30 hours


"They watch, they hate, they copy."

My favourite Etixx products

  • After a competition, the Recovery Shake PRO LINE is fantastic for recovery!

Triathlon - I am passionate about sports. Since I was little I admired professional athletes because I grew up in a family passionate about sports. When I started practicing triathlon, a sport that brought together three passions, I dreamed of being what I am now, and being able to participate in some Olympic Games. I feel fortunate to be part of the Etixx team, but above all, to maintain it over time and that they continue to trust me and my work. It is a luxury to work with a brand like this, which makes you feel valued and loved.

Running - Sport was not really my favourite hobby until my 5th son got cancer and running kept me going, literally and figuratively. From 0 to 5km and finally to full marathons (secretly my favourite distance). With perseverance, a good schedule and Etixx this is definitely possible! With support from Etixx, I can achieve these goals and my body gets the right nutrition at the right time.
