Race

I was born in Antwerp, Belgium, but moved to Zell am See, Austria in December 2000. I started skiing at 2,5 years old and joined Ski Club Zell am See at the age of 6, where I competed in my first races. During my childhood I was attracted to all sort of sports. In addition to my skiing, there were also successes in football, tennis and golf. I went to school at the Sports Gymnasium in Saalfelden, Austria. During the last 5 years I had the chance to be part of the Ski gymmnasium, where I was able to combine school and my sportive ambitions. At the age of 15 I decided to concentrate myself exclusively on skiing, winter and summer. In 2017 I got my High School Diploma (Matura). At the moment I'm studying Engineering at Bad Reichenhall University.
