Golden Couple01 September 2016
The historic performance of the French boxers won them 6 medals and as a result, the Noble Art is strongly growing in the French clubs.
Thanks to the 6 medals won in Rio – 2 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze – this was the best performance in France Boxing Olympic history. This result is pushing up the number of members in the French gyms as happened with swimming clubs after London 2012, which saw the number of their members grow by 15%.
This Olympic momentum is clearly also driven by the achievements of the “golden couple”: the superheavy weight champion Tony Yoka and his girlfriend, the lightweight champion Estelle Mossely. Their double success is contributing to the development of French boxing movement.
