From Mauritius to international podiums

Rémi grew up in Mauritius, where his father was national technical director of the judo team. He grew up in the world of judo and moved to France at the age of 7. He has since obtained dual nationality and trains at the JC Villiers le Bel since 2012. He naturally joined the club where his father Frédéric was coach. He notably trained Messie Katanga and Samah Hawa Camara (world youth medallists in 2013 and 2014).

This high-quality environment enabled Rémi Feuillet to progress and quickly reach the top level. He entered the big leagues with national competitions, winning a tournament in Trappes and one in Laval in 2013 and 2016. These tournaments prepare him for a more important competition, the French 1st division championships in 2018, where he reaches the quarter-finals.

Still attached to his childhood country, he represents it in international competitions. Rémi Feuillet finished 3rd at the African Games in 2019 and twice won bronze in the -90kg category at the African Championships.

The Olympic Games

After shining in the African competitions, Rémi set himself the goal of taking part in the Tokyo Olympic Games. For an athlete from Mauritius ranked around 50th in theIJF rankings, this was a difficult task, but now it’s a reality.

Indeed, following a very fine performance at the Budapest Worlds in June. Rémi takes 7th place and an almost unhoped-for ticket to the Olympic Games.

Unfortunately, the competition quickly came to an end for him, as he lost to Japan’s Shoichiro Mukai, (runner-up in the 2019 World Championship) in the 2nd round.

Aiming for Paris 2024

Since this wonderful adventure, Rémi Feuillet has another goal in sight, the Paris Olympics in 2024 .

The now experienced judoka will be doing everything in his power to secure a place at these Olympic Games, which will be held in one of his two favourite countries, France. He starts 2022 with a fine bronze medal in the -90kg class at the African Championships, and is now ranked 38th in the IJF rankings.
