Axel Hubert, a young Decathlon star, joins the Pebax Powered® team!
We are delighted to announce that a new promising athlete will join the Pebax Powered® team to kickoff 2019. At 22 years old, Frenchman Axel Hubert is a complete athlete in his discipline of the decathlon–a combination of 10 track and field events: 100m, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400m, 110m hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin, and the 1500m. Axel is considered one of his countries best athletes, especially when in 2018 he finished close behind his fellow countryman and famous World Record holder, Kevin Mayer.
From the French countryside to the Texan prairies
Axel will begin his studies and training at Texas Tech this year, preparing for his next goals: World Championship in Doha 2019, European Championship in Paris 2020, and the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020.
