On behalf of First Lady and chairperson of the Seychelles Children’s Foundation (SCF), Natalie Michel, SCF chief executive Noella Gontier presented Jean-Michel with a gift last week.

Mrs Gontier congratulated Jean-Michel for his excellent achievement and wished him continued success for the future – both in his sport and academic studies.

On his part, Jean-Michel thanked the foundation for its continued support. He said that without the support of the foundation, he would not have been able to take part in the tournament and come out a winner.

“I’m very happy to have won the -55kg category of the tournament,” said Jean-Michel, who described the fight as “very easy!”

Jean-Michel is the child ambassador for the SCF. In 2011, he won a silver medal in the Jeux de l’Espoir in Mauritius.
