Yohann started rowing because his dad rowed when he was a teenager and he decided to give it a try as well....The most influential person in Yohann’s sporting career is Jean Christophe Rolland who received a gold medal in the pair at the 2000 Olympic Games because he showed to everybody that anything is possible during a race… Yohann’s most memorable sporting achievement was racing his most fun and fastest race in the Men's pair with Tom Peszek at the Olympic Trials in 2016... Yohann is married and recently welcomed is first daughter into the world.... After his rowing career, he hopes to focus more on his family, his work and traveling more.
