It is the first time that a French woman has been sanctified. She succeeded Robbie Toei (New Zealand), who crowned in 2019. Her performance at the Tokyo Olympics undoubtedly influenced the decision: she helped France win a historic silver medal.
In men, Argentine Marcos Moneta, brilliant at the Olympic Games with six attempts, was named.
