Laurent turned a deaf ear when asked to choose between his two passions. It’s all about balance. Don’t give up on your passions! he tells the young people he meets at the many talks he gives at schools. “As a result, Laurent knows the science behind nutrition, and what it takes to get peak performance for himself and others.

An award winner as both a scholar and professional athlete, Laurent received the 2020 Lou March Trophy as Canada’s Athlete of the Year, Sports Illustrated’s 2020 Sportsperson of the Year award, the 2021 ESPY Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award and was also named as Quebec’s  Spokesperson for the Hooked on School Days Week since 2019.
