Yagg Sports Awards have some FGG connections

Yagg.com has published its second annual list of "Yagg Sports Awards". It's a bit tongue in cheek, but we have to agree with their choices, which include:

Award for Dignity to football player Yoann Lemaire, the most visible victim of homophobia in football in France.

Award for Sports Leader to Bruno Aussenac, outgoing president of the FSGL: "pour l’ensemble de son œuvre au sein de la Fédération sportive gay et lesbienne (FSGL). Auréolé d’une médaille de la fédération des Gay Games, il laisse sa place à la vice-présidente de la fédé, Christelle Foucault à qui l’on souhaite les mêmes joies." (For all his work in the French LGBT sports federation. Honored with a medal from the Federation of Gay Games, he is leaving his place to the VP of the FSGL, Christelle Foucault, to whom we wish the same joys."

Award for the Best Smile to Matthew Mitcham: "Deux ans après son coming-out, il est toujours aussi heureux, motivé et toujours aussi charmant. Encore un que la communauté gay à la chance d’avoir. Et en sport? Toujours au top. Le champion olympique de plongeon de Pékin a toujours une belle marge de progression." (Two years after coming out, he's just as happy, motivated, and as charming as ever. One more guy the gay community is lucky to have. And in sport? Still at the top of his game. And the Beijing Olympic diving champion still has room to progress.)
