Paris Saint-Germain Judo team crowned French Champions

Paris Saint-Germain Judo took home the double at the French Team Championships in the First Division in Villebon-sur-Yvette on Saturday.

18 Rouge et Bleu athletes were involved in the competition, including the recently crowned European Champions Romane Dicko and Marie-Eve Gahié, as well as Olympic Champions Amandine Buchard and Teddy Riner.

During the Women’s Team event, the Paris Saint-Germain Judo athletes beat Eure Judo (3-2), Judo 83 Toulon (3-0), JC Maisons Alfort (3-0), Saint-Geneviève Sports (3-0) in the semi-final, and finally, Etoile Sportive de Blanc Mesnil Judo (3-1) in the final of the competition.

“I am very proud of our teams, commented Djamel Bouras, President of Paris Saint-Germain Judo. The double in the French Team Championships is a rare occurrence in the history of French judo. Our athletes proudly wore the colours of the Paris Saint-Germain family and proved that the Club is now a major player in our sport in France. These results support our project which drives our huge ambition and maintains a level of constant progression. Many important challenges lie ahead for our judokas, with the club or for France. We continue our work alongside them, so that we see them shine in the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.”
