Le Gala de Distinctions de l’ACNO a eu lieu au Forum Karlin de Prague – une des salles les plus prestigieuses de la ville pour des événements culturels, sociaux et professionnels – le 2 novembre dernier.

La cérémonie spectaculaire a servi de toile de fond à l’hommage rendu au dur labeur et au dévouement des deux-cents-cinq CNO et leurs athlètes. Eux et d’autres représentants du Mouvement olympique ont convergé autour de cette célébration véritablement globale du sport olympique.

The fourth edition of the ANOC Awards, saw the best male and best female athletes of all five continents awarded for their exceptional sporting achievements throughout the year. Three individual accolades – Outstanding Performance, Contribution to the Olympic Movement and Outstanding Lifetime Achievement – were also awarded. The ceremony was broadcast live in countries around the world and as well as online on Czech TV and ANOC’s website and YouTube channel.

En plus des distinctions elles-mêmes, le public global a pu assister à des représentations époustouflantes de cinq ensembles qui ont fidèlement reflété l’importance du métissage culturel et sportif qui a lieu au sein du Mouvement olympique.
