Saturday at TIP Sports Village

Saturday morning saw the first day of sport at the TIP Paris International Tournament, and the weather was smashing. Little wonder that the sports village got off to a slow start, with TIPsters joining sun-starved Parisians outdoors.

That said, the "Swedish gymnastics" class drew a nice crowd and got the ball rolling for the day's activities.

No, they are not intentionally imitating Mark Tewkesbury...

A set of film clips from films and TV programs on LGBT sport was produced for last December's conference organized by the FSGL. It was shown again in the presence of conference chairs Philippe Liotard and Chriss Lag. The room was full, and the discussions rich, including those provoked by a student working on a paper on the notion of segregation and LGBT sport (the student seemed a bit ignorant on the subject, so the films perhaps did her some good...).

Sports demonstrations took place in the late afternoon. Here is Niji Kan martial arts.

Antoine Le Blanc has done a fantastic job planning and executing the sports village. Here he's presenting La Mélodie du bonheur and Envie de chanter, two choirs who performed at the opening of the Apéri-TIP get-together.

After a road race in the leafy Bois de Vincennes in the morning, FGG sports officer Sebastien Datiche rushed to the Espace des Blancs Manteaux to help staff the FGG table in the afternoon.
