Poema NEWLAND wins bronze

Poema Newland took home a bronze medal from the European kitefoil championships in Portsmouth (UK). Following a superb start to the race, she picked up a penalty which pushed her down into third place behind English athlete Ellie Aldridge and Dutch woman Annelous Lamnerts.
September was all about podium places for Poema Newland who also won the Mediterranean Beach Games in Heraklion.

Disappointment for Luka MKHEIDZE

Luka Mkheidze was knocked out in the second round of the Grand Slam in Baku in mid-September – a repeat of what happened in Budapest. Disappointment for the Team ENGIE athlete who now has his sights set on gold at the European Championships in early November.
September also means a change of club for Luka Mkheidze, who is now joining Paris Saint-Germain Judo, where he will be training alongside Teddy Riner.
He also spoke at the ENGIE Consulting seminar where he shared his experience.

Future major Team ENGIE fixtures:


  • 3 to 5 November: European judo Championships with Luka Mkheidze & Madeleine Malonga.
  • 10 to 12 November: Finals of the ENGIE Kite Tour in Fréjus featuring the three Team ENGIE kiters: Poema Newland, Axel Mazella and Alex Caizergues.

Alongside Alex Caizergues, who has been our Kite Surf ambassador since 2009, ENGIE is supporting ten high-level athletes this year as part of the French Sports Foundation’s “Performance Pact”. The goal for the ten Team ENGIE athletes is naturally to qualify and compete in next summer's Olympic and Paralympic Games which will take place in Paris. 



Team ENGIE, supporting their performance, revealing their talent!
