When Franck Riboud inaugurated the Evian Masters Training Center in 2006, former Olympic fencing champion Jean-François Lamour, the Minister of Youth, Sport and Community Work at the time, expressed how important he felt this initiative was. “I believe in the importance of this unique training center because of the way it complements the sector of top-level sport...it provides a new approach to elevate golf and promote the emergence of new champions.”
“Sport is elitist”, Franck Riboud replied. “And it is through the elite that we can create aspirations.” From then on, every effort has been made to implement a youth.
