In love with open water swimming

In love with open water swimming

One day, I joined an Open Water competition, I immediately loved it. So I started to set some Open Water challenges for myself. I swam across the channel between France and Great Britain in a relay. I swam 46 kilometres around Manhattan Island in New York, and also across the Gibraltar Straits. I love those challenges as they push me to train for a solid goal.

My job at Decathlon

I've been working for Decathlon since 2002. I am now the Open Water Swimming Leader. My job is to observe open water swimmers, understand their habits to create the products they need. We constantly work to improve our products, we create prototypes and we test them here in Hendaye (France), I gather feedback from swimmers and we adjust our design accordingly.

Joining Decathlon

My job is my passion

I swim in the ocean pretty much every day. I love the freedom and the connection with the nature. And more importantly, I love to swim with others, whether they ar eseasoned swimmers or not, it feels good to swim in a group. That's what I love with my job - inspiring people to live out freedom through open water swimming.
