Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing:
When he was eight years old, Philippe’s Dad took him out for an afternoon of skiing at the cross-country ski centre which was at the end of his street. He really liked it and has been doing it ever since.
It is more than just skiing for Philippe because he is passionate about training. Philippe likes to push and develop his body to its maximum. Philippe loves the fact that cross-country skiing is a sport where you have to commit yourself 100 per cent physically and mentally. His inspiration is to always keep pushing.
When not training, Philippe has been learning to fly-fish so he plans to go fishing during his recovery week.
He has completed a diploma in police technology, and is in the process of completing a Law Certificate at Laval University. Outside of sport he would like to become a police officer.
