My own sporting background
As a kid I used to be involved in gymnastics and soccer playing. Today I fitness once in a while, getting more active in road / MTB cycling, but most of my sport time is spended with alpine snowboarding. Mostly serious (training), but I like to play and 'jib' around as well.

My favourite sporting moment or heroes
The Tour de France riders, SBX-boarders.. (para-)Athletics at amateur or professional level.. They are all inspiring to me. But my most favourite moment is at the Olympic winter games 2010/2014: parallel snowboarding.

Mashed patatoes with kale, Dutch pancakes with blueberries, lasagne with spinach, and top favorite: chocolate.
