Micka (, 01 Dec 2019)
Sylvain Chapelle [national], FRA
His brother Bassa Mawem has represented France in sport climbing and won gold in the speed event at the World Cup in both 2018 and 2019. (Riding Zone YouTube channel, 22 Oct 2018; SportsDeskOnline, 26 Feb 2020)
He took up the sport at age 11 in Huningue, France. (, 09 Dec 2019)
He followed his brother Bassa into the sport. "When you are young you want to follow your brother everywhere. You are so proud of doing the same tricks alongside him. When we went to climb together I was so happy of sharing a sport with my brother. And then, the feelings on the wall were good. We suddenly felt that the sport was for us." (, 09 Dec 2019;, 01 Sep 2019)
To compete at the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Games. (, 09 Dec 2019)
He trains at the national training hub in Voiron, France. (, 01 Dec 2019)
"If I want to do something, no matter what it might be, I must give it all. If tomorrow I stop and begin with table tennis, I want to be competitive, to reach top performance." (, 01 Dec 2019)

General Interest

Preferred discipline
Bouldering (, 01 Dec 2019)

In 2019 he and his brother Bassa secured the two France men's qualifying quotas for the 2020 Olympic Games. "It was our objective since we knew sports climbing would be at the Olympics. Since the day we knew it, we made our sponsoring file and at the front of it we put an image of both of us with the text 'Tokyo 2020.' We were there since day one. This is our personal victory, having said it previously and having done it. It's one of a kind, the Olympic Games, and we are siblings. That will be quite an experience. We are prepared for that." (, 09 Dec 2019)

He and his brother Bassa 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. Bassa said: "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." (, 09 Dec 2019;, 2018)
