A former professional rugby player, Maxime stopped his career 1 year ago. A professional for over 17 years with Stade Toulousain and the French national team, sport is part of his DNA, and he continues to pursue a number of sporting objectives.
Being a top-level sportsman. I come from a family of rugby players, so naturally I followed in my father's footsteps. When I was 13, I told my father, "I want to be French champion at least once in my life", and the Stade Toulousain enabled me to make all my dreams come true.
It used to be a green square, but today it's more about nature, trails, the banks of the canal in Toulouse or the banks of the Garonne.
