« As a professional athlete, kids look up to you and get inspired by your actions. Through my Foundation, I wanted to take up concrete actions to protect them and to empower them. I wanted to help improve the lives of children and families in need and help them achieve their dreams. It is a great pleasure to be recognized for my social commitment and I warmly thank Peace and Sport and H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco for this Award. I look forward to continuing to inspire and support disadvantaged children. »
