Enough to impress young sportsmen from Saint-Martin! 

After a disturbed start to the school year linked to the passage of the monster Irma, Solidarité Laïque and the USEP des Iles du Nord wished to bring together the largest students of primary schools in Saint-Martin, as part of the "Sport" day. and Citizenship ”sponsored by Jean-Marc Mormeck.

An event that allowed students to meet around a friendly sporting event and learn about different sports in a fun way, the objective being to promote sport as a tool for education in citizenship and solidarity .

Many young aspiring boxers also took the opportunity to ask Jean-Marc Mormeck about his brilliant global career obtained from the pros. A question came back over and over again: "What are the keys to

success to become world boxing champion ”? Response from JM. Mormeck: "You don't become world champion like that: it takes a lot of work and the desire to never let go, the desire to question yourself every day to better advance and seek victory"!
