{TRF members: Lurking again...a couple of things:

  1. Daniel Ducruet is 100% Italian, not French. Thus why he speaks "good Italian". He grew up in France though.
  2. Louis likely has not yet graduated, and will graduate with a degree in general studies as his present school (SKEMA Business School, not University of Sophia Antipolois)doesn't offer a bachelors in anything else, and it won't be until next year as graduation photos are taken a year in advance and the program is a 3 year program. Afterward, he should be moving on to get his masters in Sports Management from SKEMA, which is a program they offer.
  3. Martine Malbouvier is the mother of Michael Ducruet. She is a former girlfriend of Daniel's, from 1990-1991.}
