On Wednesday, July 3, 2024, the Château Montauriol park in Montauban hosted the traditional Sports Trophies evening organized by the Tarn-et-Garonne departmental council. An important event three weeks before the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

As tradition dictates, the end of the sports season is a good time to present the Sports Trophies, organized by the Tarn-et-Garonne Departmental Council. On Wednesday evening, July 3, there was a crowd to set up in the grounds of the Château Montauriol and discover the winners. As a preamble, Michel Weill, President of the Department, recalled the involvement of the community, which devotes 2.5 million euros per year to the various clubs, in subsidies or sports equipment in particular. The evening was also placed under the sign of Terre des jeux 2024, a label that has been used for several months through actions such as the tour of Olympic flags in colleges, the torch relay or the Olympic and Paralympic week at the University Center.

Several hundred people gathered in the park of the Montauriol castle in Montauban.

A guest of honour was at the party: Thibault Colard, bronze medallist at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio in the lightweight coxless four category. The rower, who already had ties to Tarn-et-Garonne, has just settled in Montricoux. Sophie Caverzan, the only Tarn-et-Garonne athlete present in Paris at the Paralympic Games in taekwondo, also spoke by videoconference, taken up as she was by her preparation at Insep.

The big trophy for Pierre-Darasse college

The long presentation of the Trophies, commented by Jacques Bréda, has been going on, with the Grand Trophée as the highlight. This year, it was presented collectively to the Pierre-Darasse college in Caussade, winner of the challenge of the French National Union of Sport (UNSS) called “The important thing is to participate”.

42 sports associations from the department affiliated to the UNSS of Tarn-et-Garonne were involved and the Caussadaise sports association finished first in terms of the number of children who participated in major events of the year such as the color run, the trail, the raid, the path of the arts, the pentathlon and the departmental cross. The Pierre-Darasse college also distinguished itself through its performances in sports disciplines and in relation to the training of referees.
