About Me

Despite a difficult beginning of life as a very premature child, I have always been full of energy and joie de vivre. It was after an introduction to school and a discussion with my principal in order to channel my "too full of energy" that I took my first steps in judo at the age of 10. Today, I am an Olympic runner-up, three-time world champion and three-time European champion, and a complete and committed athlete. Godmother and ambassador of SOS Préma, I am campaigning for greater media coverage of my sport and the return of judo to school with the sponsorship of a school labelled "Paris 2024" in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. I am also very committed to equal treatment between men and women as sponsor of the operation "Women's Sport Always" alongside the Minister of Sport, the Secretary of State for Gender Equality and Anti-Discrimination and the CSA. Field Marshal of Land Force, holder of a DESJEPS and world No. 1 I will lead all the Teams of France in my capacity as flag bearer of the French delegation. An honour and a pride that I hope to achieve by winning a 4th European crown.
