Team EDF: a group of committed athletes
Formed in 2009, Team EDF is made up of 17 committed sportspeople. Made up of both disabled and able-bodied athletes, five of its members are also Group employees. Three watchwords drive the athletes in this elite group: diversity, performance, and commitment.
Team EDF: a group of champions
Led by two high-profile ambassadors (Alain Bernard and Tony Estanguet), Team EDF is home to multi-medal winning champions that excel in sports as varied as fencing, table tennis, and boxing. Water sports – swimming, canoeing/kayaking, rowing – to which EDF provides particularly close support, are strongly represented in Team EDF, as are disabled sports that we are committed to supporting.
Whether they be able-bodied like Coralie Balmy or disabled athletes like Élodie Lorandi, Group employees like Émeric Martin and Marie-Amélie Le Fur or sponsored athletes, all members of Team EDF share two things in common:
- An impressive track record: at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games alone, of which EDF was an official partner, Team EDF athletes walked away with a total of 31 medals, including 12 golds.
- These elite athletes are as committed as they are talented, in their sports as in their everyday lives: every year, in addition to their sporting objectives, Team EDF champions get involved with events at which the Group is a partner. Their role: to promote sport for all, have fun with the general public, and transmit messages in line with our values.
Through Team EDF, EDF transmits shared values like performance, team spirit, and expanding comfort zones.
All of the Team EDF athletes are the perfect embodiment of these values.
Camille Muffat, Olympic Swimming Champion, disappeared tragically early this year. She became part of Team EDF in 2010 and was nominated as an Ambassador, along with Alain Bernard and Tony Estanguet in 2014, following his retirement announcement.
