The France Swim Team are currently in Val d’Isere after competing in the 2011 World Swimming Championships in Shanghai.
Val d’Isere and Tignes are popular locations for national sports teams to recuperate and train as the sports facilities combined with the high altitude make them excellent training grounds.
The team, who are soon to commence training for the London 2012 Olympics, are enjoying the mountain sports which Val d’Isere has to offer such as hiking and mountain biking. They also have some fun activities planned such as white water rafting and spending the night in a mountain hut refuge as a break from their rigorous training schedule. The village are delighted to be hosting them this Summer.
