Q: What is your best memory from the last orienteering season?
A: "La 77" is a mythic race in the Fontainebleau forest. The longest course has 77 controls for a distance of 15.4 (2x7.7) km, the scale of the map is 1/7777, and it is extremely technical. This year's edition was amazing, I really loved this race. I finished 10th in 2h17, ahead of many strong orienteers.

Q: If you had one tip for young orienteers what would it be?
A: When you get lost, don't panic: just enjoy the challenge of finding where you are as fast as you can!
