World and Olympic champion from France Estelle Mossely strives to repeat her success in Paris 2024. As a qualified athlete, Estelle aims to make herself and the home crowd happy in just a few months’ time. Competing in the 60kg weight division, she will face a lot of strong rivals on the way to the top, but has prepared to give her all to fight each one on her way.

‘In just a few months’ time, I’ll be representing the colors of my country to the best of my ability. My goal is to become an Olympic champion once again, embodying all that this title signifies for my sport. Boxing has developed considerably over the last few years, with boxers from all backgrounds and origins, and women’s participation in the sport is growing all the time,’ Estelle said.

Following her success in Rio 2016, Estelle gave birth to two children, who are supporting their mom on the way to repeating her success.

‘I wish to represent a modern successful woman who triumphs. The female boxer who hasn’t sacrificed her role as mother for boxing, but who has turned it into a strength since I won the Olympic title in 2016,’ she added.
