Rain of medals for the Blues at the Euro

With three gold medals and two bronze medals, the French team has refueled and leaves with five charms from the European Championships in Switzerland.
Full box for the Blues! At the European Championships, the blue-white-red delegation posted a very good collective performance. From Martigny (Switzerland), the French team leaves with a medal in each of the five competitions. Women’s and men’s individuals, women’s and men’s doubles and finally mixed doubles. On arrival, each member of the French team left Switzerland with their star-spangled jersey! A nice group shot by Aurélie Bories, Charlotte Darodes, Ligan Doerr and Henri Lacroix.

Flawless among the women

Both head-to-head and doubles, the Blues brought home two gold medals. Individually, it was Aurélie Bories who defended the French chances. We had to fight until the end to get this title! In the quarters, the Aveyronnaise ended up dismissing Turkey (13-10). In the final, she won 13 to 8 against Monegasque Laura Vierjon. In doubles, with Charlotte Darodes, the French pair finished the work cleanly and without any burrs. 13-2 in the final against Belgium and the European coronation in the pocket. The biggest obstacle was ultimately the locals, with a 13-8 victory in the quarters against the Swiss.

Henri Lacroix rebels

In mixed doubles, the Blues’ journey ends in the semi-final. Charlotte Darodes and Ligan Doerr lost to Belgium (13-5), future European champions. Jessica Neskens and Logan Baton won the final against the Netherlands. For Henri Lacroix, it was necessary to digest the disappointment of the individual. Already beaten by the Swede Ivar Lijiegren in the group, the player with 13 European championship titles lost again in the semi-final. With pride, Henri Lacroix played a good game in the final of the doubles, with Ligan Doerr. The student and the master, both licensed at the Boule Fleurie Crauroise club, won European gold. Obviously leading the medal table, the blue collective can close this Euro with the feeling of accomplishment.
