Our Champion for Peace

Sarah Ourahmoune

I know that I have a duty to set an example and I take that on board. Throughout my career, boxing has educated me in its own way by transmitting values, and I realize the strength that this can bring. If today I can encourage young people to take up some form of sport, I will have achieved my challenge.


For the last bout of her career, Sarah Ourahmoune won the silver medal at the Rio Games. A pioneer’s latest sporting achievement.
Emblematic representative of the “Team Solide” Sarah is a personality apart in the world of boxing. A true pioneer of women’s boxing, this young mother clung to her Olympic dream and fought prejudice.
Appointed government delegate in Seine-Saint-Denis, her home department, she will open her own boxing gym in Paris in September 2017. Very committed, it carries out several actions around reintegration, disability and gender equality.
In the summer of 2017, Paris2024 chose him to defend the Olympic project which notably aims to invest in favour of youth in the Paris suburbs and joined the Champions of Peace club to promote sport as a tool for social reintegration.
