Sylvain Chapelle [national]
:
His brother Mickael Mawem has represented France in sport climbing and won gold in bouldering at the 2019 European Championships in Zakopane, Poland. (Riding Zone YouTube channel, 22 Oct 2018; SportsDeskOnline, 26 Feb 2020)
:
He took up the sport at age 15 in Huningue, France. (ffme.fr, 01 Jan 2015; liberation.fr, 01 Dec 2019)
:
He first tried the sport during a school competition in France. He later enrolled in a sports climbing club. "Climbing brings me balance, a moment in which I detach from work, family. A moment in which I don't think neither about the future nor all those things that I still have to do. In simple words, it is my moment." (ffme.fr, 2015; ouest-france.fr, 09 Dec 2019)

SHARING A DREAM
In 2019 he and his brother Mickael secured the two France men's qualifying quotas for the 2020 Olympic Games. "We dreamt about it [competing together at the Games]. Now it is really taking shape. It will be really something. It will be crazy!" (lequipe.fr, 29 Nov 2019, 01 Dec 2019)

CLIMBING BROTHERS
He and his brother Mickael have supported each other since beginning their sporting careers. The pair, who refer to themselves as 'Les Freres Mawem', have developed their own brand of t-shirts and climbing accessories and aim to open a number of climbing halls in the future. Although they live over 10,000 miles away from each other, they keep in constant contact. "We call each other almost everyday to know how training goes. For me, knowing that Mickael gives everything in training, it encourages me to do the same. When I train I always say to myself that I need to continue on, so I can call him and tell him that I am exhausted. When I call him I only expect one thing, that he tells me the same thing. In our goals we need to say, 'Okay, next time I see him he needs to see how much I improved, he needs to see the difference'. Distance pushes us to expand our limits." (ouest-france.fr, 09 Dec 2019; lesfreresmawemshop.fr, 2018)

OTHER ROLES
He has served as director of the sports climbing technical regional team in Noumea, New Caledonia. (la1ere.francetvinfo.fr, 30 Nov 2019)
