Ilyes Debbah is a University student by day, and a fitness instructor by night. I guess this makes his jumping side his “alter-ego”. You may recognize Ilyes from the many stunning videos of double dutch team IV de Legende (The legendary Four), or as a representative of France at international events and competitions. Follow Ilyes on Facebook @Ilyesdebbah, or on Instagram @ilyesnkaz for frequent videos and updates.
Listen here to hear Ilyes talk about his “first love”, bringing double dutch to the streets of France, and how the Minister of Sport is helping send jumpers around the world.
