Our Ambassador Tom Boon is Brussels sports personality 2016!


Tom Boon hardly needs an introduction after he and his fellow Red Lions put hockey on the map in Belgium. The national hockey team managed to impress and inspire friends and foes alike with their heroic run at the 2016 Summer Olympics, receiving the silver medal after a thriller against Argentina.

Besides his successes with the Red Lions, Tom has a very rewarding national career at his club Racing Brussels, with which he became Belgian indoor hockey champion two seasons in a row: 2015-2016 and 2016-2017. And as one of the rising stars in international hockey, he regularly figures in best contemporary hockey players lists.

All this has not gone unnoticed in his native Brussels. A press jury consisting of the editorial staffs of Le Soir, Viva Bruxelles, Vlan and BX1 chose him over worthy competitors for the title such as Olivia Borlée or Romelu Lukaku. It speaks for itself that goldenpalace.be is very proud of its ambassador. Congratulations with the title of Brussels sports personality 2016, Tom!

Hockey is not the only sport in which Tom excels: he also has a very keen eye for football! As the ambassador for goldenpalace.be, he gladly shares his quick insights on a selection of weekend matchups. You can read all about it on our ambassadors tips page!
