Land of champions


Besançon is a fertile ground for athletes, both professionals and amateurs, from many different sports.

With its great facilities, Besançon has hosted many major competitions this year and can be proud of its champions (triathlon, karate, cycling, handball, trail running ..) who represent the town on podiums all over the world. Well done to them for their results! They are a source of inspiration to all the budding champions who train with the town’s 100 or so sports clubs.
