Monegasque athletes meet over informal barbecue
The Monegasque Association of Olympic Athletes made its comeback after the summer break at an informal meeting around a barbecue in Fontvieille which gathered about sixty of its members on Friday, September 20. HSH Prince Albert and many Monegasque public figures were present for the rendezvous.
The recently elected President of WAMA, Mr. Jérémy Bottin thanked the Sovereign Prince for his presence and support, offering him a polo shirt with the new logo of the Association. The Prince is himself an Olympian, having participated in five Olympics from 1988 in Calgary until 2002 in Salt Lake City as a member of the National Bobsleigh Team.
The Monegasque Association of Olympic Athletes will work closely with the Oly Committee to promote the values of the Olympic spirit in the Principality through its various efforts.
