World Para-Athletics Championships, good performances from Yannick and Valentin!
In November, our two athletes took part in the World Championships for their disciplines and both achieved good results that bode well for a Paralympic year in 2020!
In athletics, for their 3rd edition, the 2019 World Para-Athletics Championships took place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 7 to 15 November. Among the 28 athletes selected to represent France, Valentin BERTRAND obtained 5th place in his category, in the long jump.
On the fencing side, Yannick IFÉBÉ, who has also been selected, took part in the World Cup which took place from 14 to 17 November in Amsterdam. He finished 5th in two events.
With these 5th places, Yannick and Valentin are well positioned for the 2020 Paralympic Games.
