Padel and running

Hi, I am a Ghent alumni Sports Management at UGent, and now work as CEO of Padel Kiosk. Besides padel trainer, animator and board (Kazou and Route du Soleil) and volunteer at Red Cross-Ghent, I am above all an avid sportsman. After competitive swimming and football, I set my sights on padel and extreme challenges: Gran Fondo Marmottes Alpes, 100km running, Marathon des Sables, swimming the Dover-Calais Canal, etc.

Athletics (marathon)

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.
