Sport Specific Information
Sport Specific Information

Club / TeamAssociation Choletais de Patinage sur Glace [AGCP]: France  
Reason for choosing this sport"I like speed skating because it is very similar to roller skating, the sport I have been practising since a young age. My mother practised figure skating and my dad did rink hockey. My grandmother was a cashier at a roller skating venue in Gujan-Mestras. I became immersed into the world of skating from an early age. What I liked about speed skating is the sporting adventure, very different from my personal and structured cocoon that I have been living since my childhood, which meant getting out of my comfort zone, and especially finding another taste of training without leaving my passion for roller skating."

Other informationOCCUPATION
He works for his family's painting and decorating business in Gujan-Mestras, France. "I am a house painter. I'm lucky to have my parents as my boss. It allows me to reconcile work and sport. It does not mean that I have an easy life either. It may even be a little harder. My father has the roles of both father and boss. Changing the cap is not necessarily obvious. In general, I train, I go to work, I re-train and I go back to work." (rollerenligne.com, 27 Jun 2019)
