I first took up triathlon when I was 14 years old because I loved the sport! The people who have had the most influence on my sporting career are my club and training partners in the Clermont-Fd area. A sport development project I am participating in is the attempt to include paratriathlon in the Paralympic Games. My favorite ITU race has been the 2009 London WCS, because the field was quite big at the start, and the race was very well organized. In an average week, I train between 15 and 25 hours. My personal best swim time (750m) is 12 minutes, bike (20km) 29:30, and run (5km) 16:20. My triathlon goal is to win the first triathlon at the Paralympic Games. One thing the triathlon world doesn’t know about me is that I’m lazy about training when the weather is wet!
