Tell us something we should know about you: I try, with my team "athl'ethique", to promote the natural medecine in sport, and fight against all the chemical drugs to respect our body, and stay in good shape all the life. I try also to create a kind of organic races, to push all the outdoor races in France to be more "eco" on the organisation. Athl'ethique do that since 10 years but now everybody start to listen!!!!
