Gravelines – French Rowing Championships!

by Jérémie Azou (translated by Gillian Shaw) source text

I could hardly have imagined finishing the year so fantastically! This weekend, the French Rowing Championships marks the end of what has been the best season of my career. And each medal has its own tale to tell!

The medal I won the day before yesterday has its own particular flavour; That of sharing and friendship with my crew- and club-mate Julien Gazaix. He has been there training with me day in and day out, for the past two years. His physical and moral support was essential when aiming for the Olympics. Finishing with this title  with him, in the 2x, was the best finale possible.
