Story by Philippe Boets
Marco Foyot, famous French and World Champion, has opened up his own website.
His career started off with a bang, by winning La Marseillaise three years in a row ( '74, '75 & '76).
Since then, he has accumulated some 450 national and international medals.
You'll find lots of pictures and stories about his tournaments and travels.
The site is in English, French and German for now. Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Swedish versions are in the making.

For some reason the worl championship in petanque is held in the buzzling metroloplis of Tahiti this year! So pack your swimwear and go there at once!
Finally petanque has found a new home, as a bar game! Althought it might take a few years befor the darts-boards get the boot and petanque moves in everywhere it has started to happen
The Financial times has finally understood that Petanque is the game of the future, with our long time friend Mike Pegg, International umpire. "It may not be the sunny south of France but even on a chilly Devon day, British fans are warming to the charms of pétanque"
This is a product we have mentioned earlier, just because it is sooooo French. A Tour de France petanque-set! This is more French than a baguette!
We stumbled across a petanque-game for the andoid-system. From the produces description:"Petanque in St Tropez is a 3D bowls game, as played on the mediterannean coast." We do not have an android-phone to test it on, perhaps one of you can help us out?
