Natalie Thoumas-Gui’s “Big Recognition”

Essential
After a year of work, the Sports Center in the Plains of Sports was established. He bears the name Natalie Thoumas-Gui. From an early age to a training club, this enthusiastic athlete was recognized.

After a year of work, the new sports center is now operating on the border between the Armandy and Laval areas and the SUA football facility. The first athlete will own it this Tuesday after the final work is completed. “We are in the final stages,” emphasized Jean Baptist Chippy, director of the sports department of Agen’s municipality.
In any case, last Wednesday, Mayor Jean Dionis hid his pride “in the work accomplished” during this new infrastructure discovery tour, taking over from the old changing room next to the Ferrasse Tribune. It was. And especially about the commitment made in front of Agenais and Agen. “It’s important to respect it,” he said at the end of the visit, where all participants were able to understand the functional aspects of this brand new module. The first bet in any of the “safety and modernization” of the plains of sport. The culmination of three years of long work. The first final within the broader framework of the Armandie project.

Many club presidents, including Michel Sanz, president of SUA Omnisports, and Jean-Louis Carnir, president of ABC, have joined forces to discover new infrastructure for the sports plane.

The first justice of the peace also welcomed this achievement of “meeting the sporting challenges of all.”
In any case, the sports center is equivalent to an investment of € 2.4 million, including “Euro 1.3 million in the city of Agen alone”.
In any case, it is an excellent tool with a surface area of ​​1,200 m2 for the SUARugby Association and all the sports clubs around it (athletics, basque pelota, tennis and even triathlon). School children can benefit not only from individuals but also from this device. “For example, from noon to 2 o’clock, it is the desire of the municipality to allow everyone to use it for sports sessions,” the sports director explained.

Prestigious Agen

The municipality has chosen to initiate civic consultations by proposing a sports personality that marks the city of Agen. And by the very majority, the name Natalie Thoumas-Gui was chosen. The choice welcomed by the mayor. In her awakening, Natalie Thomas Gi fell almost embarrassed: “It’s a big perception.” A former athlete today expressed “her joy and honor” in front of her parents at this inauguration.
His friends also spread banners praising “his achievements and their pride in his volunteers.” This is Natalie who has never counted the hours worked at this SUA track and field club. She brought this awareness to the sky and spent 10 years under a tricolor tunic. Natalie also has a selection of 25, including one of the World Athletics Championships held in Rome in 1987. She entered the semi-finals in a double lap. His patience and determination was rewarded with a gold medal at the 1983 Mediterranean Games in Morocco.
An appellation that inspires all these young sportsmen and women. Sacrifice, commitment and determination can be the motto of this “Natalie Thoumas-Gui” cluster. Either way, she’s the perfect ambassador …

SUA track and field graduates have created a banner to show their pride in seeing their friends honored at the inauguration.

At the Natalie Thoumas-Gui Sports Center, which covers an area of ​​1,200 m2, the association can benefit from “higher quality sports space and medical monitoring”.
There are 6 changing rooms on the 1st floor. They have an area of ​​nearly 40 square meters with a changing area and a shower area. Changing rooms are reserved for educators. The two changing rooms are for referees. On match days, space is available to accommodate medical personnel, doping controls, and various representatives.
On the ground floor, the association will benefit from fitness and bodybuilding space “equipped with equipment from SUA and the city of Agen”. “In fine weather, this space can be extended to an outdoor terrace,” explains Jean-Baptiste Chippy during his first visit.
The club has access to a 130-square-meter meeting room that can accommodate more than 100 people. It is also an ideal place for “moments of cheerfulness”.
Finally, storage solutions and state-of-the-art medical spaces complete the division’s configuration.
