Musclemania® Paris Physique Junior Laecardonnel Baptiste was thick, lean and symmetrical. The 5'7", 178 lbs., former French Army soldier was on stage for the first time. Laecardonnel says, "I am no longer in the Army. It was difficult for me to train when I was a soldier. I often was leaving on a mission like Vigipirates (a French civil alert system) because of the January attack or in Mali where I'm stationed for four months. I get to train but not enough to prepare for competitions."
