French 2013 Universiade Champions honored



PARIS - For the fourth consecutive year, the traditional Gala evening of World Champions took place on Thursday 16 January in the CNOSF amphitheater ‘Nelson Paillou’. Many French athletes medaled in 2013. In a friendly atmosphere, some 80 of last year’s golden champions were present. In total, no less than 42 federations were involved in 2013 in Olympic disciplines, university sport, Paralympic sports, non-Olympic disciplines and military sport.

In the presence of Jean-François Sautereau, FFSU President; Vincent Rognon, FFSU National Director and Damien Bardot, FFSU Director of Communications & Partnerships, eight French 2013 Universiade gold medalists (5 Summer and 3 Winter) were celebrated and rewarded by various personalities, in the presence of Valerie Fourneyron, French Minister of Sports and Denis Masseglia, CNOSF President.

Present for FFSU were Maelle Di Cintio (judo), Boris Artaud (shooting) and three members of the French football team that was victorious in Kazan, i.e. Maxime Mantel, Theo Gazagnes and François Basset, who were accompanied by their coaches Bruno Naidon and Gilles Signoret.
