I like listening to chilled music which helps me to relax before a game.

    Notes from the field

    Hey I'm Barbara but most people call me 'Babs'. I have been a member of the Belgium national team (Red Panthers) for 6 years and I have 195 caps to my name. My international debut was in 2009 in San Diego. I have been lucky enough to participate in the following major events: 1 x Olympic Games, 1 x World Cup and 3 European Championships. Aside from hockey I love spending time with friends and family, travelling and listening to music. If I wasn't playing hockey I would love to travel and learn about the cultures around the world.
