Higher for Rio

"Losers find excuses, winners find a way"





At the age of 20, after a gymnastics carreer, Fanny wanted some change and decided to try out athletics, especially pole vault.

She quickly grew up to the top, improving the national records 7 times and collecting an impressive total of 9 national titles. 



Fanny has been dedicating her life to sports since she graduated as a doctor in Medicine in 2012.

She always kept looking forward even in hard times and despite the many setbacks an athlete can encounter.

Her hard work and determination have now lead her as close as it can get to her olympic dream.


Show her your support and give her the last kick to improve her personal best from 4m40 to 4m50, the olympic qualification standard.


Stay tuned on www.fannysmets.be for the latest news !
