As part of the partnership between LVMH and Paris 2024, LVMH provides direct support ahead of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 for athletes whose inspiring journeys make them Artisans of All Victories. The Group is proud to announce that para-cyclist Marie Patouillet has joined the LVMH family with Maison Dior. Marie was double bronze para-cycling medalist at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo and a five-time silver medalist at the para-cycling track world championships.

This partnership continues the active support that LVMH and its Maisons have for many years provided for high-level sports and the most prestigious international competitions. From the creation of numerous trophies to trunks designed specially to hold them, LVMH Maisons have long been partners to the world of sports, spanning a wide variety of disciplines, including tennis, rugby, basketball, soccer and automobile racing.

Born with a deformity, Marie was able to practice sports until the end of her medical studies, when the pathology became increasingly disabling. The athlete found herself compelled to adapt and give up running for cycling, a sport where her legs did not have to support any weight, and has since won an impressive series of medals. In addition to her career as a high-level athlete, Marie is also a general practitioner. Actively engaged in the fight against sexism and homophobia in sports, she seeks to drive positive change around these issues, echoing the commitments of the LVMH Group.

Marie Patouillet will represent Dior as Ambassador for the Paralympic Games 2024. Passionate and committed, both values shared by Maison Dior, Marie Patouillet is resolutely focused on achieving her dream of winning a gold medal at the Paralympic Games Paris 2024.

LVMH and Dior are thrilled to welcome Marie Patouillet as ambassador and Artisan of All Victories. She is the fifth athlete to join the LVMH family, alongside swimmer Léon Marchand, five-time world champion and record-holder in the 400-meter individual medley, Mélanie de Jesus dos Santos, four-time European champion in artistic gymnastics, fencer Enzo Lefort, gold medalist in team men’s foil fencing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and individual men’s foil world champion in 2019 and 2022, and Pauline Déroulède, triple champion of France in wheelchair tennis.
