Antony can quite claim to welcome foreign delegations.
When do you use Antony’s equipment?

When I played at the Antony Handball Club, I trained at the Lionel Terray Gymnasium, and I also had the opportunity to do physical preparation sessions at the Georges Suant Sports Complex. I also know the high quality of the facilities in this city for having taken advantage of them during moments of leisure, whether at the stadium or in the swimming pools.

What do you think are Antony’s strengths for hosting foreign delegations?

I think that the living environment, the efforts to renovate equipment, the proximity to transport and equipment are a major asset. The green spaces that the municipality has as well as its commitment for years to the development of sport and the support of young people make Antony, for me, a city that can quite claim to welcome foreign delegations in the best possible way.

The Georges Suant complex is one of the best in France.
What changes the use of sensors in your workouts?

The track was reopened during the winter season. We have therefore not yet been able to exploit the full potential of the sensors and the overspeed lane. But I can’t wait to use them! I could collect objective data on my athletes, in real time. All the important parameters of a race will be transmitted to me: amplitude, stride, frequency, speed…

Before, I used video but that imposed downtime for the athlete and myself. And then it lacked precision. With this application, I would have an immediate restitution of these elements and an in situ exchange with the athlete. We can correct details much more easily.

Why prepare for the Olympic Games
in Anthony?

The City is located very close to Paris and has infrastructures that allow all athletics specialists to train easily. The room of weight training, the covered hall, the overspeed lane and the sensors make the Georges Suant stadium one of the best sports centers in France.

Green spaces such as Parc de Sceaux and Parc Heller are ideal places for strolling.decals for jogging or endurance sessions. The proximity to the Pajeaud aquatic center offers a significant alternative for the athlete recovery. The private hospital of Antony has experts and specialized sports equipment. Sports service agents are also accustomed to organizing major competitions and therefore know how to manage the arrival of delegations or recognized athletes. what do you want more ?

Antony gives me the means to achieve my goals
How are your workouts going? in Anthony?

Before the Tokyo Olympics, the athletics track was under construction. I trained on that of Verrières-Le-Buisson which is 200 meters away. But since October, I’ve been lucky enough to be able to practice my sport on a brand new track. I am part of a group of a dozen runners.

We take advantage of the covered hall to do our warm-ups, sheltered from the cold and bad weather. The place also keeps us warm and hurts us less. When the muscles are awake, we go outside to start the session. In the middle of a race, the new tartan gives me a feeling of speed which helps me to work on my positioning and my strides.

You wear
club colors
from Antony for 4 years…

However, it is not near my home since I live in Paris in the 14th arrondissement. I chose to train here, with Vincent Clarico but also with the group. The atmosphere is family and very pleasant. All the athletes help each other, give each other advice. The stadium also allows me to do everything in one place: bodybuilding, endurance in the parks, sprint on the track…

This place and this club give me the means to achieve my goals. I want to keep my title for Paris 2024 and I know that it will have an even stronger symbolism because I would have won this medal at home. If international athletes could come and train here, they would undoubtedly make young people want to discover sport and flourish like me.
