The sport’s “South West” Oscars, 58th named, took place this Monday evening at the Matmut Atlantique stadium in Bordeaux. With a rich track record despite a year 2021 disrupted by the Covid
We had missed them! After a blank year, due to the pandemic, the Oscars “South West” of sport came back to life on Monday evening at the Matmut Atlantique stadium in Bordeaux. Despite the threat of the Covid which still lurks, the flower of regional, national and international sport was gathered to honor the main players in this particular sporting year.
Among the headliners, among professional athletes, rugby player Grégory Alldritt is the almost perfect standard of the year for Stade Rochelais, double finalist of the Top 14 and the European Cup, but also his personal performances with the XV of France winner of the New Zealand All Blacks in November.
Still for rugby, Christophe Urios received the Oscar for manager of the year. And here too, the reward could be collective for his team from Union Bordeaux-Bègles, double national and European semi-finalist and current leader of the Top 14.
Finalists, semi-finalists but also titles with the players of Basket Landes, French Women’s League champions for the first time in their history, represented by Captain Marie-Eve Paget and Marine Fauthoux, herself bronze medalist at the Tokyo Olympics! Also in Tokyo, Paralympic fencing medalists Romain Noble and Damien Tokatlian were also in the spotlight.
But this year 2021 had started with fanfare with the feat of navigator Yannick Bestaven, winner of the Vendée Globe after an epic comeback on Maître Coq.
