Performance : 2019 French Combined Champion France 2020 combined champion. Works Carrosses et Citrouilles, 8a in Briançonnais. Just before the All Saints holidays, I have just released an indoor diff 8a. Louise what can we say about you academically? Academically I don’t have a problem and luckily I often do my homework on transport when I come back from internship or competition. Have you already thought about your professional future? I’m full of ideas, but nothing has stood still. Physiotherapist, Orthodontist … I’ve always thought of a climbing profession, but my parents show me other directions as well. I wanted to be an opener, and since I love to draw I would like to create climbing clothes for women that are adapted and more customizable to very thin body types! But also draw takes. Why do you like competitive climbing? I have a lot of energy and this discipline allows me to work out and I like performance, if it isn’t that interests me. I also love rock climbing because it is an individual sport where I can express myself without relying on others. Since my parents are not climbers at all, I love to share and climb with others. I was very happy to meet Theo Blass and Alizée, her little sister and her parents, to climb heavy in Briançonnais. It is through these encounters that I can observe other approaches to outdoor climbing beyond indoor competitions and discover the pleasure of practicing together in nature. Do you have a goal through the competition? I would like to go to the Olympics in Los Angeles. In climbing there are several disciplines, you know all three since that is why you are champion of France, which one do you prefer? I like bouldering a lot, it’s more convivial, we’re still a small group around a project and it’s more motivating, yet I’m stronger in dif.
