Luven is boring as shit though. No great media presence, does he even have any videos from the races he's done?The new skipper could be Nicolas Luven (Clarisse replacement in 2022, and currently on Malizia), wouldn't be a bad candidate for sure !
Good point. Thank you for the timely reminder.You're arguing with an idiot and he'll beat you on experience. Just sayin.
Her husband decided to have a child too. Maybe he should stay home. Which was the plan.Ethics.
It's her discision to take a child. Makes her not a top atleet.
It's heavy to carry and give birth to a child.
In the end she wouldn't have missed for the the rest of the world.
A child wish is stronger than winning the vendee globe.
Makes her human.
Wow. This seems so obviously a stupid move by BP and VG… there must be something more? PR suicide!?!
Vendée Globe 2024 : le Team Banque Populaire contraint de changer de skipperwww.voile.banquepopulaire.fr
Due to her motherhood they are not shure if she can successfully finish her qualifying races for the VG. Cunts.
So was Armel Le Cléac'h, but he got the results and got the win for BP.Luven is boring as shit though. No great media presence, does he even have any videos from the races he's done?
There's more to this story than what is in the press or in folks speculation.
She can still qualify. That was the plan all along.Let’s take a step back and analysis this on the actual facts.
A Company decides to finance a multi million USD/EUR/GBP (choose your poison currency) sports project As to be present in an event.
The company didn’t decide to invest the money just because but because they have some supposedly smart guys in their offices who told them that if they invest X they will get X+5 in return; done deal.
Further more the Company decides to hire a sportsman/woman to execute the project.
As to be able to participate in that event, the sportsman/woman has to participate in Z amount of pre events.
For reasons out of the controle of the Sponsor, the sportsman/woman has been unable (motherhood, injury, psychologically) to participate in the required events as to qualify so far and because of that the multi million project that they are paying for might not be able to participate in the event.
The Sponsor decides to substitute its sportsman/woman with some other who can guarantee them that they will be able to participate in the event.
So …where exactly is there a problem in all of this?
Why are you arguing with a known idiot? It just makes the thread poluted with his nonsense bullshit.That is not ethics, THAT is your opinion.
Are you saying that it would be impossible to have a child and then sometime later IN THE FUTURE..participate as an elite athlete? That's some bullshit right there.
"A child wish is stronger than winning the Vendee Globe" WHAT?
Would you say the same things if say Armel and his partner(if he has one) chose to have a child after the last edition?
I guess there must be more to it.Banque Unpopulaire, from now on.
What a backwards decision. I hope rhat somewhere in the vast French lawbooks there is a line in there that basically says 'pay a gazillion d'Euros, you moron.'
All the best to Clarisse and her daugther, you will find a better sponsor, I am sure.
