As a kid, I played basketball like everyone in my community, but without any talent.
Since the age of 9 years I have been riding.
In my early 30s I got my first dog (a Spanish greyhound) and started jogging. After a few years of jogging, I signed up for my first marathon through a friend. During my marathon preparation in Lanzarote he started at the Ironman Lanzarote. While cheering, I knew I WANT TO DO AN IRONMAN. Eight months later, in 2012, at the age of 36 I finished the Ironman South Africa with a huge smile on my lips and got infected by the triathlon virus.
A year later, at my first Ironman 70.3 race in Luxembourg, I qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World championship in Mont Tremblant Canada. Since then I have participated in countless triathlon races from Olympic distance to Ironman, where I regularly achieved podiums and top 10 rankings.
