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 outstanding achievements make them Artisans of All Victories. The Group is proud to announce that Antoine Dupont, member of the French national rugby union team – and now also a member of the Olympic French rugby sevens team, a sport on the Paris 2024 Olympic program – has joined the LVMH family with Louis Vuitton. 

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, from tennis, rugby and basketball to football and automobile racing.

An exceptionally talented player – capped over 50 times for France’s 15-a-side team – the French half-scrum has already earned an impressive array of titles in 15-a-side rugby at the age of just 27. He was voted World Rugby Men’s 15s Player of the Year in 2021, won the Six Nations title in 2022, Top 14 three times (and was named Top 14 player of the season in 2021 and 2023) and European Cup with his club.

Antoine Dupont started playing rugby at the age of 4 in his native village of Castelnau-Magnoac in Occitania. Since November Antoine has set his sights on Paris 2024, joining the Olympic French rugby sevens team preparing for the Paris 2024 Games and aiming to win a first Olympic medal. Antoine also recently won the Los Angeles Sevens tournament with the French national team.

In addition to representing LVMH, Antoine Dupont becomes an Ambassador of Louis Vuitton for the Olympic Games Paris 2024. With his drive for excellence and ambitious goals, Antoine Dupont continually pushes his limits to achieve his dream of Olympic gold. LVMH and Louis Vuitton are delighted to support him on this journey and to welcome him as Ambassador and Artisan of All Victories.

Antoine Dupont is the sixth 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 2021 Olympic Games and individual men’s foil world champion in 2019 and 2022, Pauline Déroulède, triple champion of France in wheelchair tennis, and double Paralympic medalist in para-cycling Marie Patouillet.
