Members of Monaco’s very successful basketball team have been meeting hands-on with young students in Monaco to spread their own enthusiasm for the game. Olivier Basset, Roca Team’s assistant coach, Amara Sy, the team captain, and Jamal Shuler, one of the leading scorers in the team, were at the Révoires school on February 9 to share their passion.
During the visit, students of the fourth and fifth grades (CM1 and CM2) demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm for the sport and its local representatives.
This educational approach is part of the policy of the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports to enable pupils, particularly those of Révoires, to become familiar with certain sporting, artistic and cultural disciplines. For example, table tennis, dancing, and bridge sessions are offered to students every Thursday during their lunch break.
Roca Team, currently at the head of the PRO A championship, take on the Antibes Sharks February 14 at 8 pm.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual will take place next month with a “Strong Together” Ferrari entered by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.
It was a Monaco Grand Prix weekend like no other, with not a single car racing around the Principality save for a Ferrari being driven by Charles Leclerc with Prince Albert in the passenger seat.
The Automobile Club of Monaco has announced that the F1 Grand Prix, the Historic Grand Prix and Formula E races will all be held within a five-week period in 2021.
Without even putting his foot down in an F1 racing car this year, pilot Charles Leclerc is having a pretty stellar time with massive eSport success and now landing a gig as the new face of Giorgio Armani.
Charles Cuypers is taking time to adapt to the fact that the dunes in Peru are not the same as in Africa. He had a small wipe-out and suffered a slight navigation error but is ready for the remainder the race. Nicolas Brabeck missed a way point, which will cost him penalties, the Monaco team management said. “This is probably due to euphoria but he is very well prepared.” The Rally started in the midst of windy conditions and a great deal of swirling sand.
