YOUTH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS DATE CHANGE
Following the destruction of the Competition Wall in Noumea in a fire on 24th December last year, the IFSC in agreement with the FFME, have decided to postpone the dates of the Youth World Championships competition.
The Youth world championships will instead be held from 20 to 24 September 2014.
To assist the various National Federations in organising their travels and the FFME are doing their best to obtain information from airlines and travel agencies, regarding cheaper flights from various cities and countries.
An Internet link where National Federations can find all the relevant information in booking travels for their competitors, team officials and accompanying people will be available soon.
A similar system will be put in place for accommodation, noted that with every World Championship, the lowest price will be reserved for projects of solidarity associations with the most limited means.
The FFME is committed to answer any questions you may have.
NBL 2014 has begun.

Good Luck to all!
International Registered Testing Pool 2014
Every year a certain number of athletes are selected for what is called a Registered Testing Pool; athletes included in the RTP are subject to anti-doping tests not only during the competitions but also out of competitions (24h/24h - 7days/7days).
This is done through what is called the Whereabouts System; athletes are asked to fill in a web-based form which is part of the WADA provided software called ADAMS, indicating where they are to be found over a certain period of time, and they are also asked to update it once they change their schedule.
To see the composition of the 2014 International Registered Testing Pool, please follow the link below.
HEROS NEVER DIE
Rest in Peace Madiba.
Some people inspire individuals, groups, tribes even nations!
There are very few who inspire generations.
Determined to use the world stage to unite our nation, Nelson Mandela rallied international support to bring the Rugby World Cup to South Africa in 1995.
Rugby is a sport of brute force and as such, rugby symbolised apartheid opression to many black africans but this didn’t deter Madiba.
