Our Champion for Peace

LAURA FLESSEL

By adapting sports, we can reach out to young people living in vulnerable areas, where violence is rife. I firmly believe that sport is a tool capable of contributing tangibly to the socialization and re-socialization of the most underprivileged people.


Laura Flessel, Peace and Sport Champion and Fencing Olympic Champion, has been the Minister of Sports of France between 2017 and 2018.
As a member of the Champion for Peace club since 2009, Laura has been a great sponsor for the development and movement of peace through sport.  Most importantly, she participated in the creation of the “Sports Simple” Manual.
