Who is Victor Muffat-Jeandet?
Victor Muffat-Jeandet was born in 1989 in Aix-les-Bains, France . He is a French World Cup alpine ski racer. From his biography one comes to know that he has always been a perfectionist and passionate about sports since his childhood. As a child, he used to indulge in rock climbing, rugby, mountain biking and other such sports with his parents. Muffat-Jeandet currently resides in his birth town, Aix-les-Bains near Lake Bourget. Born in Aix-les-Bains, Savoie, Muffat-Jeandet debuted into World Cup in February 2009 in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. He got his first podium in 2015 when he got a runner-up finish in a super combined at Wengen, Switzerland. His first win came three years later at the same race. At the World Championships, Muffat-Jeandet finished 26th in the slalom in 2013 and 7th in the giant slalom in 2015. Recently, Muffat-Jeandet won a bronze medal at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. Muffat-Jeandet is nicknamed as Super Toter by his parents and friends. He is fond of reading, computers, travel, mountain biking, wakeboarding and reading comics in his spare time. The athlete studies sports science. Muffat-Jeandet can speak English, French and Italian languages. He trained in the club Val d’Isere under Coach Frederic Perrin. Once during his European Cup event in Sochi, Russian Federation, he had injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in 2013. He required surgery then and could not return to competition until the November of that year. In 2013, after injuring his anterior cruciate ligament in a crash, he had created a cartoon character displayed on his helmet once he returned to competition. The character, who is known as ‘Super Totor’, is an intellectual-looking boy wearing a ski suit and hence his nickname became ‘Super Totor’. “I like comics and superhero culture. Two or three times people have thought I’m not an athlete because I wear glasses. I found it funny to make a small character, with his schoolboy’s head, his little schoolbag and his ski suit.” The French World Cup Alpine ski racer said in an interview. When asked about his earliest memories of skiing, he was said, “I had the chance to slip very early, at the age of two or three, to Revard and La Féclaz. I then played my first competitions at six. With my very competitive spirit, the chemistry was immediately made! A few years later, I took part in the Coq d’Or, a fairly important milestone that really marked my first steps in the big competition! I remember that child, this famous Golden Cock made me completely dream. So I participated from 10 to 14 years: if I did not manage to bring one home to my first participation, I caught up well the other years (laughs).”
