I am a 27-year-old marathon runner with very big ambitions. Since the beginning of 2022, I have been living 100% as a professional athlete because of my contract with Topsport Defence. This gives me an excellent opportunity to get the most out of my sports career! I am also active as a coach within the Altius project of Runners' Lab Athletics Team and I enjoy delving into the world of stocks and real estate.

My favourite Etixx products

In the past I have used both Beta Alanine Slow Release and Iron 125 AA. These products have helped me get strong results every time. Despite having a sensitive stomach and intestines, these supplements have never hindered me.
