ALL-SEASON PARALYMPIAN
He has represented France in multiple summer and winter Paralympic Games, first competing in fencing at the 1996 Paralympic Games in Atlanta. He chose fencing because it seemed different. "It was a little original. I liked the look of it. It was a new thing to discover, a combat sport, and it is a sport that demands concentration and rigour. There is also this ceremonial aspect about it which I wasn't aware of and found very interesting." (interviewsport.fr, 01 Jul 2010)
