Morant Agency Continues Growth; Signs skiers JF Houle and Mirjam Jaeger

Action Sports Marketing and Management company, The Morant Agency (TMA), signs professional skiers JF Houle and Mirjam Jaeger. TMA works with elite athletes to aide them in their business and athletic goals.

Quebecois JF Houle, 24, is one of the foremost slopestyle skiers in the world. His progressive take on urban features and his fluid airs have made him a stalwart of freeski competition. JF's 2010 results include 1st at the European Open Rail Jam, 1st at the LA Session Les Arcs Big Air, 3rd at the Austrian Open Slopestyle and 4th at the Mount Snow Dew Tour Slopestyle stop. He ended his season as 6th on the Winter Dew Tour Slopestyle rankings and 10th on the AFP Slopestyle rankings. Not only did JF have an impressive contest season, but he also made waves in the industry with a stellar performance in the Level 1 Production movie Eye Trip. Don't expect JF to slow down either! He has already started his 2010/2011 competition campaign with an impressive 3rd at the Monster Fridge Big Air in Budapest, Hungry.

Mirjam Jager, 28, is a Swiss born model and a leader in women's half pipe skiing. In 2010, Mirjam demonstrated she is a force to be reckoned with, by placing 3rd at the World Ski & Snowboard Invitational and 4th at the Winter X Games in Aspen. Her large airs and styled grabs put Mirjam at the top of her sport.  Mirjam can be found modeling in the advertisements for Swatch, BolleƬ, Dalbello and Faction Ski . Balancing her time between competition and modeling, Mirjam is one of the hardest working girls in action sports. Mirjam is now busy training for her first event of the year, the Winter Dew Tour  stop in Breckenridge; where she plans to continue to prevail over her competition.

"JF and Mirjam are extraordinary athletes and personalities," declared Tyler Morant, TMA's founder and Director of Athlete Relations. "They are great additions to our current team of athletes. We are stoked to be working with them. Keep your eyes out for these two, they will be gracing podiums, magazines and movies across the globe."
