An essential day in the life of Collège de Paris member schools, the Olympiades bring together the group’s establishments for an inter-school sporting experience!
This year, more than 1,000 students from all over France and abroad took part, forming teams of 5 participants cheered on by their numerous supporters 🤩
A day rich in competition and good humour
After a long coach journey to the Vélodrome de Saint-Quentin-Les-Yvelines, our Euclésiens from Strasbourg, Messins and Rémois were welcomed by members of the organizing STAFF, students from Digital College‘s sports program.
Armed with their BDE flags and orange T-shirts, our alternates immediately got into the great atmosphere of the day! 🤙
Without delay, our participants embarked on a tough competition 🏁
With their own set of tests, they fought and won duels in soccer, badminton, dodgeball, choppe la barre, tennis ball, table tennis, basketball, panna soccer, tug-of-war, wrestling and rugby flag against competitors of all sizes ⛹️
They gave us some memorable sporting moments, some indisputable feats ✅
Special mention goes to Armand, a work-study student at Reims, who put in one of the best performances of the day in the “grab the bar” challenge, with more than 2 minutes in the air under his own power! 👏
With a DJ and a foodtruck for refreshments, our alternates remained determined to win as many events as possible and take the cup home! 🏆
