Jules Segers – Handiskiing

At only 17 years old, Jules Segers is a rising star in disabled alpine skiing. Originally from Les Gets, he made his first glides on skis at the age of 3 years old and continued his career with the French Ski School of Les Gets. 

Coming from a family of sportsmen, the spirit of competition and surpassing oneself are in his genes.

Alpine skiing and more generally snow sports are a real passion for him. 

Alpine skiing is a rich and varied sport with an incredible playground. From a piste to a slalom to an off-piste, no two turns will ever be the same. I particularly like the Giant and the Slalom because they are technical disciplines, without too much speed, which require a mastery of the turns in order to execute the most beautiful trajectory.

After encouraging results in the French Cup, he joined the French disabled sports team in 2017.

In parallel with skiing, Jules is continuing his studies to obtain a scientific baccalaureate in order to join the IUT in Annecy-le-Vieux in 2020. 


Thanks to his good results during the 2018-2019 season, Jules has had the opportunity to defend the colours of Les Gets and France in national and international competitions (European Cups and some World Cups) in 2019-2020.

Next step : to be selected for the 2022 Paralympic Games.

There are many criteria that go into the selection for the 2022 Games: race results of course, but also motivation and our training performances. At the moment, I am doing good training but I am not yet able to reproduce exactly the same performances in the races. I feel that I need to improve on the mental approach. This will be my objective for the next races. »
