Zé Boaventura crowned by the Picardie athletics league 13 October 2015
Zé Boaventura has for the fifth time been honored with the prominent athlete award, a trophy given annually by the Picardie League to distinguish sports personalities who have won titles in athletics competitions.
The athlete was recently named Europe Master’s Games champion, and came in fourth place in the World Championships in Lyon, France. He was also French champion in the 100-meter obstacle course race and came in third place in the 400-meter obstacle course.
These achievements have the athlete “satisfied” with the current season. Nevertheless, he expressed regret at not having achieved the world championship, in part due to an injury that forced him to take a temporary break from competitions.
