One Goal: French Paralympic Games 2024

I want to be in the top 20 in the world. I am very patriotic at heart and why not dream of being the flag bearer in Paris in 2024. I am very proud to belong to the French team and I would love to wear the colors high up in Paris. Otherwise, Roland Garros is a little girl’s dream. This is the tournament that made me want to. We can say that this is a piece of the Grail. But with a small number of participants, Roland-Garros is ultimately more difficult than the Paralympic Games.” she explained to us last year. There is no doubt that Pauline Deruled will follow her dream.
