Boss of the French ski team
A long-distance and skiathlon specialist, Maurice Manificat boasts an impressive CV. He's taken twelve podium places in the cross-country skiing world cup. These include five world cup victories. He also won a bronze medal at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, was second in the individual 15 km race at the 2015 world championships in Falun, and a bronze medal winner in the relay at the same event. In 2016, he was ranked fifth in the world for cross-country skiing and second in the world for distance events.
With an active presence on social media, he published some impressive statistics in September 2017: 11,000 hours of training since 1999 and 590 bibs donned for competition (all disciplines included). This shows he's spent a third of the last 18 years in competition or training camps. You might say he's just a little bit passionate about his job!
Pro Team - A special series to shine at the highest level!
To support Julbo athletes in the major sporting competitions of winter 2017-2018, we've created a special series. Thanks to dynamic graphics and carefully chosen color combinations, we'll take our heroes and heroines to new heights and help their medal dreams come true. The contrasting colors of the helmet, goggles and sunglasses are symbolic of the transition from shade to light, evoking both our photochromic lens technologies and our competitors' quest for glory.
They also mean you'll easily spot Maurice Manificat on the screen or on the course!
