Mr.Moon, Olympic Finalist
"I hated every minute of training, but I always told myself not to quit. "Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion". Quote Muhammad Ali"
I started swimming in school. When the teacher told my parents I was talented, I joined a swimming club. My biggest dream was to participate in the Olympics. During my swimming career I broke 78 Belgium records. My dream became reality. Finally in ’92 I participated in the Barcelona Olympic Games. I was an Olympic finalist (200 meter back stroke). Some highlights of my swimming career: In ’93 I received a bronze Medaille 200 M. back stroke at the World Championships in Palma the Mallorca In ’94 I won the USA Open in Buffalo NY 3 times. In ’95 I competed in the European Championships in Wien and received a Bronze medal for 100 M. back stroke. After my professional swimming years, I started coaching abroad to share my experience as an Olympian. A few years ago I came back to Belgium. My passion for swimming is still as big as when I started, therefore I started my own Company SWIMMOON, Swimming from a to z, where I share my Passion and my Experience with triathletes, swimmers and extreme sporters at all levels so that they can chase their dreams.
Safety is the most important thing in life. After my swimming career the doctor found out that I have an auto immune disease. The medication I take is important data (if something happens to me). That's why Mojid Bands is a great initiative...knowing that you are safe at all times.
