My favourite sport is walking. I also like to cycle but lately unfortunately I do that less often. Through the years I nearly participated at all events of Le Champion.

 With the transfer to Le Champion my dream became reality. For some time I had the wish to take on a more welfare-governmental role in my work.

As a retired runner with a big feeling of involvement I became part of the member council in 2015. From there I entered the board in 2017.
