MANPOWER GAP

"[It was] definitely my most difficult and mental challenge ever. Beforehand, my stress was greater than it has ever been before a competition. When I landed it was the reward of a year's preparation. I made parkour history. It's beautiful." (france3-regions.francetvinfo.fr, 01 Jun 2022; Instagram profile, 03 May 2022)
