Biography[edit]

At the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, he won a bronze medal in the 4x100 metres relay with his team mates Bruno Marie-Rose, Gilles Quenehervé and Max Morinière.

At the 1990 European Championships in Split the French team of Morinière, Sangouma, Jean-Charles Trouabal and Marie-Rose improved the world record to 37.79 seconds. The record stood less than one year, as the United States team ran in 37.67 seconds at the Weltklasse Zurich meet.[2] With 10.02 seconds Sangouma is also a former French record holder in the 100 metres.
