Wednesday, 17 august 2022

Whether in Rome, Munich, Baie-Comeau (Canada) or Ceske (Czech Republic), the athletes supported by the Group and its companies have performed particularly brilliantly in recent days. New medals have been added to what is already an impressive list of achievements for many of them.

Congratulations for their bronze medals

Congratulations to Charlotte Tremble, supported by the Caisse d’Epargne Haut de France within the framework of the Performance Pact, who returned from the European artistic swimming championships with a total of 3 bronze medals won with the French team. Congratulations also to Valentine Fortin, a cyclist supported by the Banque Populaire Rives de Paris via the Performance Pact, who claimed bronze in the team pursuit event with the French team at the European Championships in Munich!  

Congratulations to the new European silver medalists

Rayan Helal, a racing cyclist supported by the Caisse d’Epargne Rhône Alpes via the Performance Pact, won a superb silver medal in the team sprint along with a bronze in the individual sprint, his first international medal in the individual track racing event. 

Laura Tarantola and Claire Bové, two French rowers supported respectively by the Banque Populaire Auvergne Rhône Alpes and the Banque Populaire Rives de Paris via the Performance Pact, were crowned European silver medalists in the lightweight double sculls event in Munich. Erika Sauzeau, an adaptive rower supported by the Banque Populaire du Nord via the Performance Pact, was also crowned European silver medalist in pararowing along with the French team in a PR3 Mix4+ boat (mixed crew of four)!

Groupe BPCE companies currently support nearly 200 elite sportsmen and women from all over France, notably via the Performance Pact. This program is designed to achieve two objectives: to enable athletes, through sponsorship, training and professional retraining, to calmly pursue both their sporting and professional projects and, in the process, put them in the best possible position to perform well in forthcoming competitions, notably at the Olympic & Paralympic Games Paris 2024, which Groupe BPCE is supporting in its capacity as a Premium Partner. 
This program also further strengthens the commitment to sport that Groupe BPCE companies have demonstrated for many years.
