Boxing

An Olympic sport since the Saint Louis Games held in the USA in 1904, boxing has been part of INSEP since 1981. The national squad, which over the years has worked with Olympic champions like Brahim Asloum (2000), Tony Yoka and Estelle Mossely (2016), Olympic silver medallist Sarah Ourahmoune (2016) and the late Alexis Vastine, brings together a group of talented men and women to prepare for the Olympic Games.
