Sacha Théocharis et Richard Jouve ? Qui dit « station de sports d’hiver » dit athlètes de haut niveau ! Il n’est donc pas étonnant de retrouver dès le 4 février 2022, à Pékin, deux athlètes de la station savoyarde. Chacun dans leur discipline, ski de bosses pour Sacha Theocharis et ski de fond pour Richard Jouve, ils donneront le meilleur d’eux même pour décrocher les meilleurs chronos. Toute la station est derrière eux !
