Mickael was first introduced to the sport of wheelchair basketball in his hometown of Quebec City when he saw an article in the local newspaper. He was immediately attracted to the physicality of the game and says the two things he enjoys most about playing are the contact and intensity.
He first joined Team Canada in 2005 and helped them win Gold at the Osaka Cup and the 2006 World Wheelchair Basketball Championships in Amsterdam. Mikael also won a silver medal with Team Canada at the 2009 Americas Cup, qualifying for the 2010 World Wheelchair Basketball Championships in the process. In 2011, he was part of the team that won gold at the Paralympic World Cup in Manchester, UK.
When he’s not occupied with the National Team, Mickael likes to travel and hang out with friends. He’s made plenty over the years, playing wheelchair basketball on behalf of the province of Quebec, first joining the Quebec Mini Bulldogs and eventually the senior Bulldogs club team. He is also a member of the provincial team that won back-to-back silver medals in 2008 and 2009. In 2007, Mickael was awarded the "coéquipier de l'Année" at the Sports-Quebec Gala.
Currently, Mickael plays professionally in the Spanish league in Europe with his Las Palmas-based team.
