FRANÇOIS HAMELIN

He has always been passionate about sports. At the age of 5, he began short track speed skating. It was the beginning of a great adventure that lasted until he was 31. He has been successful and has participated to 3 Olympic Games: Vancouver 2010, Sochi 2014 and PyeongChang 2018. He became an Olympic champion in 2010 when he rose to the top step of the podium alongside his teammates in the relay event.

He has now retired from high level sport. He is a dad of 2 young kids and has never lost the sport fiber. He has always needed to surpass himself physically and has found his happiness in running. He officially became a marathon runner in October 2019. He continues to train to improve his performance over the distance for pleasure and personal satisfaction.
