Congratulations to Gilles and Frinki for their win at the 2010 French Footbag open

I finally get back to blogging life as spring is coming early it seems. My friends and teammates Gilles Demers and François Depatie-Pelletier represented Montreal at the 2010 French Footbag Open held in Paris February 26-28th. They managed very well thank you by winning the coveted Open Doubles Net championship over 29 other teams. In the finals match they defeated Jean-François Lemieux, originally from Montreal, who now lives in Paris and his partner Florian Goetze. Flo had won the 5 previous edition's doubles and he's part of the reigning world champion's team. So this is a big accomplishment for Gilles ''The Blade'' Demers and Frank ''The Tank'' Depatie-Pelletier.

Florian Goetze secured the singles title to ease the pain over Matti Pohjola who usually beats him every time in the solo event.

In the Freestyle category Tina Aeberli the swiss women's world champion captured another win in the french capital with a sweet routine. In the men's routines Czech young master Milan Benda was too strong for the competition but local freestyler Serge Kaldany hit the first ever dropless routine by a french player to end up second.

Pro Kicker provided the Footbags for the net competition for a 5th year in a row.
