The 48th Petanque world championship – Men – was held between 13 th and 16th september in Desbiens a small touristic village in Canada. Far from the modern world Petanque athlets from all arround the world did their best to race after the supreme world title. Saddly some countries from africa were not abble to get their visa and asian countries were not many to join. Nevertheless the competition went pretty well. Surprisingly Madagascar, the holder of Men Triple title were eliminated in 1/8 final facing a fierce German team by the score of 13/3. After a tought 1/8 final against Belgium (13/12) an easier game against Thailand in 1/4 (13/5), nothing could be done to stop the French “Dream Team” to bring back the trophee home.
