Who am I

I am a professional athlete chasing the Olympic dream. Running for me is a source of happiness and a life school. I also get very excited about the ever-evolving science around running gear, our physiology and other facets of athletics.

Quick facts

Running 3000m & cross-country during the winter, and 5000m during the summer.

Turned pro after graduating as a bio-engineer in 2022. Since then, my home changed from a desk to altitude camps.

My weekly mileage varies between 80 and 145km.

Became vegetarian in 2023. Main motive is to perform at a higher level and enhance my daily recovery from training.

Medical technology & digital health enthusiast! I have a nerdy passion especially for the field of biosensors and their application in sports. A great example is the Supersapiens continuous glucose meter.

Former hockey player. Played hockey my whole life, but lacked the talent to enter the national team. When I enrolled at university, I made the transition to running.
