Why have you chosen your sport and how long you have been doing it?
I grew up in a sporty competitive surrounding in RSA, took it with me to Germany as a competitive swimmer and always have been dreaming of being a professional athlete. I started Triathlon 2019 with the idea of just staying fit, but my extreme ambition took over. Now I´m nearly on a professional level and loving every moment.
Sport has always been my passion, my drive and my long lasting love!
What motivates you to compete? What is your why?
Personally its hard to break it down to one motivational reason, there many that feed my drive: Being the best self (better than yesterday), the factor of being a role model for my son, the adrenaline kick you get from as hard session/competition, those moments were you just take a deep breath and realize how wonderful the journey is…
They aren’t just the typical nutrition company, they´re family! Open-hearted, always have an open ear and individualized athlete approach (which also resembles in there customized products).
Any recommendations or sport hacks that you would like to pass to the athletes in your sport?
The best tip against foggy goggles: Use Baby Shampoo and rinse once or times afterwards.
Which INFINIT product you like the most and why?
:JET FUEL - Easy on the stomach and caffein boost which is necessary as a father (parents will understand).
NOCTURNE - Because recovery is key!
