Davinia Van de Velde
I initially started running so that I could eat more without gaining weight.
Most embarrassing sport moment:
I once did the half marathon in Roosendaal. Afterwards I was told that I was the third female to cross the finish line in my age category. Unfortunately, I was accidentally registered as 65+. Oops!
Proudest sport moment:
