Winners in the six categories were celebrated in the presence of Carole Delga, President of Occitanie Region, Kamel Chibli, Vice President of Occitanie Region, and Jean-Benoît Baylet, Managing Director of La Dépêchedu Midi Group.
Each winner received a trophy from sports celebrities such as Nathalie Pechalat, president of the French Federation of Ice Sports, Surya Bonaly, the legend of tricolor skating, and Patriscania, MHB’s manager coach. This is the winner.
Athletes: Antoine Dupont
French rugby darlings like to sign doubles. Already a 2020 sportsman, Antoine Dupont has once again won the vote at the 18th Oxitany Sports Trophy. And for Toulouse’s No. 9 and the French XV, who didn’t wait to win the Six Nations Tournament last Saturday, what’s more logical to achieve unanimity for the French people, especially the Occitanie region? Is it?
Every step of the 26-year-old scrum-half rugby pitch is successful. In 2021, Antoine Dupont and Stade Toulousain’s partners were captains in the finals of the French Championship with La Rochel (22-17), winning consecutive European Cup titles and achieving a stunning double. A few months ago, DuPont Bruce finished second in the 2021 Six Nations Tournament. This performance has driven young people from Hautes-Pyrenees to another planet. Last year, Antoine Dupont was overwhelmed by the distinction between the best players of the Top 14 season from 2020 to 2021, the EPCR award of Europe’s best player of the year, and especially the best player in the world by World Rugby.
All over France relies on him to lead Bruce to ultimate success at the 2023 World Cup at home. Meanwhile, Antoine Dupont, who was physically absent from the ceremony at the Parc des Princes in Montpellier, still appears on the screen and thank the voters who won this year’s Sportsman Award from the Sports Trophy.
