Date of Birth
Nautilus Plus, Brossard
Start in Racquetball: My parents were racquetball players. They used to bring me to the gym with them every weekend, where I would hang out with other kids. The other kids there started playing racquetball and I had no choice but to join them! After a few practices, I started liking it!
Reason for playing: I play to win! I hate to lose! I love the aggressiveness and the competitiveness of racquetball.
Training habits: I don’t really have training habits. I go to the gym at least 5 days a week, different days, different hours, just whenever I feel like it. My game style is very demanding on my body, so I play as much as my body can handle. Anywhere between 1 to 5 times a week depending on how intense my training is.
Best Racquetball moment or memory: My two titles at the Junior World Championships in 2007 in Bolivia and in 2010 in Santo Domingo.
Non Racquetball Talents: Even though school is not my favorite place in the world, I could be considered as a nerd because of my grades :)!
When you are not playing Racquetball you are probably: Watching TV shows.
What is something that people might not know about you or find surprising? I speak 3 languages almost perfectly.
What advice to you have for athletes who want to play at your level? Spend as much time as possible on the court. Respect all your opponents.
Who has been important in your development as a racquetball athlete? Michel Gagnon, my coach since forever, taught me how to play and he seems to be the only person that knows how to deal with my temper! My dad, a very demanding man, has always been pushing me to improve and spent many hours on the court with me when I was younger. Also, Corey Osborne.
