- Have you started any new physical activity during the quarantine?

I haven't really started any new activity, but I have intensified it! I do a lot of Home Trainer, whereas at this time of the year I would normally do more outdoor cycling. With that being said, it's an activity that I practiced a lot during my years in Paris so it brings back some memories ;-)


- Is there anything fans don't know about you?

Oh there's plenty! luckily ;-) For instance, I eat a lot!

 As for My favorite band, I would say "Scorpio" and the song I sneak out to listen to "let it go" lol.


- A passion/hobby that has nothing to do with trail running?

 I've been figure skating for 10 years and I still love to watch important competitions when they are broadcasted on TV.

 Mimmi Kotka is the athlete who inspires me the most not only for her athletic performances but also for the beautiful person she is and the values she stands for.
