The French Veterans' Athletic Championship under the sun of Lyon
|From Friday 6th up to Sunday 8th the City of Lyon hosted the French Master Athletes. The event was blessed with one of the sunniest weekends until these days. But the City didn't only hosted the athletes but the Council Of WMA as well.
The audience could see Lynne Schickert - President of Oceania Masters Athletics - ran the steeplechase, Fuomio Sasaki - Asia Masters Athletics Secretary - who finished his 200m race successfully, and Jean Thomas-Treasurer of WMA, President of the French Masters and Championship Director of Lyon - an excellent 5000m runner and winner of his age group.
More than 1100 French athletes followed the call of the Masters' Committee and more than 40 athletes from Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Russia, Portugal, etc. All in all a very good start for the preparation of 2015.
