Ibtisam Gardabou

I am an enthusiastic girl who is bursting with energy. I am a student of Tourism & Recreation Management. I love adventurous challenges. I have only recently become an Etixx ambassador so my experience is still very limited, but I think the Etixx Ambassadors Team is fantastic!


My disciplines

  • Obstacle course racing -> Invictus OCR Team Belgium
  • Survivalrun
  • Athletics ((middle) long distance and cross) -> Koninklijke Racing Club Gent


Number of hours’ training per week

15 - 17 hours

 

"Hard work beats talent
when talent doesn’t work."

My favourite Etixx products

I like using the Recovery Shake PRO LINE before or after strength training. This ensures the circulation of amino acids, providing more chance of muscle growth. I like to use the Isotonic Drink Energy Gels during long training sessions of over 2 hours.

Bronze at the World Championships 13-19y (2019)

Bobsleigh

After a (youth) career in athletics, I switched to the Belgian bobsleigh team. After a few years, I retrained from brakewoman to pilot, while also completing my Masters in physiotherapy. In 2015, I was employed part-time by Sport Flanders as pilot and I am now about to start my 10th bobsleigh season. Qualifying for the Olympic Winter Games in 2018 was an amazing feeling and made me dream of doing more in 2022, in Beijing. I now practise my sport full time, while also being a proud Godmother to my nephew, the apple of my eye. I am very proud to be part of the Etixx ambassadors team, a super-talented and motivated group of athletes and sports enthusiasts. Being supported by such a professional company with good-quality, clean products gives me an extra push to achieve my dream of a top result in Beijing 2022!
