Personal details

When you started competing in international competitions, did you see yourself being in the top-10?
I started competing in 2000 as a Youth B, I was already in the top 10. For the world cups, it was my goal to be in the top 10 for my few seasons (2006/2007). 
What motivated you to compete rather than just to climb outside?
That's a totally different part of climbing for me. I really like competitions because I love fighting against other people. Also being able to be at the top as fast as I can.
What are some struggles you face as an athlete?
At the beginning of my career, it was really hard to find money to be totally dedicated to climbing and training. And now, it's often really hard to train for at least 6 months, and now I don’t know if I am in shape or not.
What influenced you to start competing?
I started climbing and competing in the same club as F. Petit, just after his victory at the world championship. Then, it was easy to be influenced by his performance.
Who most helped you get to where you are right now?
After all these seasons of world cups, I think my experience competing is the reason I am in the top list.
What advice could you give to Young Athletes?
When you are youth, the best thing is to become a strong and regular comp climber. The most important thing is to climb a lot (inside and also outside to work on the technical part).
Playing some Facebook games!! And some other outdoor sports
