Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport?
"I started when I was about five, on weekends with my parents and my brother, just for fun. It was only around the age of 14-15 that I started to compete." By 18, he had integrated into France's national 'Rising Stars' programme.
Why this sport?
He credits his parents with getting him into the sport, as they would go on family kayaking trips during holidays. "Every holidays, we would be out paddling on the Garonne, in the Landes." At age 15 he started competing, when a coach brought together several clubs in his region for a competition. "Canoe-kayak for me is more than a passion. I love it."
