Type of race


I started in the XL Triathlon in Gérardmer, France. I finished second in 4:59:59 with a high level in the PRO category, a significant performance!


The race start was impressive, with all the Pro and amateur athletes entering the water at the same time, totaling more than 1500 participants! The atmosphere was electrifying. I exited the water in second position in 26 minutes and 5 seconds.

The bike course was very demanding, consisting of 3 loops of 31km with 630m of elevation gain per lap. It's safe to say that it was either uphill or downhill. I felt very powerful on the climbs, and the cheers from the numerous supporters carried me along the ascents. It was an extraordinary sensation, giving me goosebumps. Halfway through the bike, my competitor Camilla Pedersen passed me. I completed the 93km in 3 hours, 3 minutes, and 3 seconds.

I started the run in 3rd position, 2 minutes and 30 seconds behind Camilla Pedersen and 3 minutes ahead of the fourth, Svenja Thoes. Three laps of 7km around the lake, with two lovely climbs per lap awaiting me. After the first lap, I had gained back almost a minute on the second, which really motivated me, and I kept my focus on my effort: I was aiming for the second place. It was already at the end of the second lap that I overtook Camilla Pedersen and accelerated to widen the gap, securing the second place on the podium. I finished in 4 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds, behind my teammate Julie Derron.

It was a tough but fantastic race, and I rose to the challenge. I took immense pleasure in competing with a crazy atmosphere throughout this superb course. I am very pleased with my athletic performance and to finish on the second step of the podium with such a high level, a beautiful reward!
