Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? He took up the sport in Valenciennes, France.

Why this sport? He tried several sports in his youth but liked fencing the most. "I might have pursued handball, I was offered to join a youth development squad but I refused because I liked fencing better. I also played hockey and I liked that a lot. What I like most about fencing is it's a combat sport but nevertheless there is always fair play, respect, and I think these are good values."

Other information OLYMPIC DISAPPOINTMENT
He hopes to use the disappointment of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, where he was eliminated in the round of 16 in the men's individual epee competition and in the quarterfinals of the men's team epee competition, as motivation ahead of the 2024 Games in Paris. "It is a very big disappointment, which is still very present today. Whether individually or as a team, I don't think I fulfilled my objectives, I did not achieve the dream that I wanted to achieve. This is why I am going back to prepare for the next Olympics. But before 2024, there are a lot of great things to look for, in particular World Cup titles and European titles. After the [Tokyo] Games there has been a change of staff in the French national team. It did me good personally because there was something wrong with our preparation for Tokyo. Having thought about it carefully, I did not feel sufficiently prepared. But now I have all the weapons in hand to have great seasons, which can lead me to great performances at the Paris Olympics in 2024. Beyond the disappointment, it has been an immense pride to be able to represent my country at such an event." (ouest-france.fr, 15 Jan 2022)
