Birthdate: March 6th, 1985
Hometown: Reunion Island
Homebase: France, Connaux
Favourite book: The biography of Jerry Moffatt
Favourite food: I love variety, but I will go for a steak tartare with fries.
Biggest dream: I am living the dream life now. I have a project and I make it happen, always sharing it with James. So my biggest dream... is to keep it all!
How do I focus: I empty my mind, breathe, think of the movements. Only climbing and that is enough!
Best advice ever received: It was a discussion with Jerome Meyer, a bouldering champion. He told me: "What is the question? Answer the question". No point training hard if you don't train what is necessary. Analyse, focus.
What inspires you? Like everyone, I’ve had heroes. Today, Yuji Hirayama, who has been able to be at the top of the game in competitions but also in sport climbs. Speed climbing in Yosemite - that inspires me too!
Words to live by: Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. And remember to enjoy!
Favourite fitness exercise: Suspension rings at the minute. So efficient!
I don’t leave the house without my… The North Face Duffel
