Jalou Langeree wants to inspire women to do sports
With that same passion she wants to inspire women to also perform sports, but foremost extreme sports. Jalou is ambitious. She now is at the very top and wants more. Being a world champion is just not enough. She first wants to improve herself to the utmost, but next to that she wants to be an example to other females in the world. She is a heroin in kitesurfing and loves to be on the water. But it still is a man’s world. It is her goal to inspire women to participate in these kinds of sports, but in any kind of sport for that matter. With that same dedication and determination with which she wins tournaments, Jalou is willing to show women to achieve something in life and go beyond their limits. Jalou: “I do all kinds of sports. Besides kitesurfing, I surf, stand up paddle and love to go for a run. I get a kick out of it and if I can persuade other women to also activate their bodies, they will be happy as well. For me standing still is going backward. That must be the same with them. Too busy, children, jobs, husbands or anything? No excuse! Start exercising. It will be rewarding.”
