Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? She began fencing at age six at the Ducos Musketeers club in the French overseas territory of Martinique.

Why this sport? She was inspired to take up fencing after watching the television series 'Zorro'.

Club / Team Levallois SC: Paris, FRA

Name of coach Herve Faget [national], FRA

Training Regime In early 2023 she decided to leave the French national training base, the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance [INSEP], to train predominantly at her club SC Levallois. Speaking after her victory at the 2023 European Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, she said her victory justified the move. "I made this choice because I wanted to have more autonomy. I'm not completely detached from INSEP, I can go there to train when I want, but generally speaking I organise my own training as I see fit now. I don't have the same restrictions. Apparently, it has paid off."
