Biggest AccomplishmentsFor me this is hard to answer, but I can say that I feel honored that after having my daughter Chantal and graduating with an MBA (In a second language in another country) with a 100% scholarship, I came back to sports and handled to be competitive for around 7 years as a professional triathlete with the support of organic sponsors. Competing internationally in more than 30 Elite & ITU events in 3 continents, in around 100 events, in different cities, states and countries from ITU to full IRONMAN.

AdviceFocus on yourself, do it for you not to impress anybody, do not compare to others rather than your past self. Find and stick to a good coach or mentors like I did, I know that part can be the hardest :)
If I'm Not Competing...
