03dif interview romain desgranges

The climbing version of a gentleman burglar : charming, discreet and efficient. Each year, this Chamonix climber improves on the competition circuit. In 2011 he made his first World Cup podium, and we hope that this year he will do the same, and specifically at Bercy !
He's certainly doing everything he can to achieve his objectives : As a state qualified sports trainer, Romain devotes his time almost exclusively to training. And yet Romain was far from predestined to climb : « When I was little, I wanted to play football, but my parents were having none of it and signed me up for the interschools at my high school. I had the choice between volleyball, badminton, or climbing. I couldn't make my mind up, so my dad chose for me ! Which just goes to show, sometimes your life can turn on a dime ! »
