ataste welcomes its newest team member: Korneel Deblock. As a top skeleton practitioner, Korneel is one of belgium's fastest athletes.

Update: Korneel is in top form! Where ataste has been enjoying the culinary benefits of the holidays, Korneel is already gearing up for the up and coming indoor season. We’re guessing he found some new running shoes under the tree this year. To provide some extra motivation for all our fans new year’s resolutions, we’ve added a little clip of Korneel in action below!

Best wishes and a great start of 2012 for all, from our healthy and ambitious top athlete!

You can also follow Korneel on his own blog (korneeldeblock.weebly.com) and Twitter account @korneeldeblock of course!

Korneel isn't just any guy we picked off the street, but a certified Olympian. Bred in the world of track and field he was part of Belgium's top in the 400m hurdling and short sprint disciplines. After participating in the Ameriak (American Cup) in Salt Lake City, his talent for Skeleton became clear and a new passion was born. This young man oozes discipline and perseverance as he combines studying Physical Education at the University of Ghent with his career as a professional athlete.

His list of achievements is equally impressive:
- Participating in the World Championship Bobsleigh (Königsee)
- Participating in the Europacup Bobsleigh (both 4 and 2 - men) - in Cesana (Italy), winterberg (Germany)), Königsee (Germany), Innsbruck (Austria)

Next year the bobsleigh will be put in storage as Korneel wants to focus and give his all for the Olympic Winter Games of 2014 in Sotchi and long term those of 2018 in Pyeong Chang.

You can find out more about Korneel on his website and see him at work in the video below.Rest assured we'll keep you posted on his achievements! Welcome Korneel!
