I’m super happy to be Foil World Champion and Slalom Vice World Champion! It’s a dream come true, and I’m ready to get the title next year in the new combined discipline! I’m also happy to keep a world title in the Mortefon family, the next goal will be for sure to be 100% World Champion! Of course, I wish we could run in Marignane - I was really ready for it and focused to win the event, but the luck was not on our side… I feel super competitive with all of my equipment and I’m really looking forward to train hard this winter and progress again in foil and slalom! Now it’s time to have some time off before going back to training in January!
I’m super happy to finish again on the podium – it’s the 7th time for me in a row which is pretty nice! This year was special, especially with the new discipline – I was sure that new faces would show up and they did but to be able to fight for the podium, and almost for the title it makes me super proud and I can’t wait to fight again next year.
I am really stoked to be on the podium and to end up as the Vice World Champion for the second time. It feels especially good as the contest was in Carro which is my second home spot – I couldn’t ask for more! It is also good motivation for next year as the last two years I didn’t really compete and I didn’t know if I was still in the game or not, so it feels good to be on the podium and to gain more confidence.
I am very happy that we had the opportunity to compete and see each other again. Like everyone, I wish there was more wind and action, but I’m still very grateful to have finished the single elimination in freestyle. After a few good heats in Carro, I managed to finish in the top 4!! It felt amazing to sail with all the best girls after so much time! I am also very happy and proud to be the Youth World Champion for 2021. I have to say that I don’t think anyone really expected this competition, but I think it turned out great and I hope to come back next year!
It feels incredible!! I did not expect to perform this well already so I kinda find it hard to believe that it’s true. I keep thinking that I will wake up from this dream and go back to reality. But I’m slowly starting to understand that this is my reality now. I’m more excited than ever to get back on the race course and fight it out with the girls again!! Cannot wait for more World Cup action next year!
This 3rd place is a big achievement for me and the dedication I gave to the foiling discipline. 3 years ago I set myself some targets and this was one of them - it is great to see that my program is on schedule and I look forward for even better years. I raced really well in Israel during the 9 races which I am proud to have been consistent and mentally strong. Marion Mortefon, Pierre Mortefon and I are on the podium and this demonstrates that the Duotone sails, Fanatic boards and Loke foils are robust and consistent, it’s by far the most versatile equipment and super easy to use too.
