Grand Duke presents award

Henri presented Mr. Robert Schuler and Dr Charles Delagardelle the International Olympic Committee award for "Sport et Lutte contre le dopage"(literally Sport and the Fight Against Doping).

Dr. Delagardelle is the president of the Luxembourg Society of Sports Medicine. He is also a founding member of the Comité National de Lutte contre le Dopage dans le Sport (CNLDS. Mr. Schuler is also a founding member of the Comité National de Lutte contre le Dopage (National Committee to Fight Against Doping). In 1990 the CNLDS was renamed Agence luxembourgeoise antidopage (ALAD).

Both Dr. Delagardelle and Mr. Schuler have a long history of being involved in the fight against doping in Luxembourg sport.

Additional information can be found on he website of the Comite Olympique et Sportif Luxembourgeois in the news archives section.

The photograph on the official website page that I linked in the first paragraph is credited to Wort but I couldn't locate any information about this online.

I know It's been a slow news week related to the Luxembourg family. Don't fret soon we'll have The Grand Duke's Christmas message and the traditional New Year audiences at the GDP. The traditional reception for the Luxembourg Army and National Police should also be happening before Christmas. Tessy and Louis are back in Luxembourg for a bit and one assumes Felix has also arrived home for the holiday season so hopefully we'll have some nice new pics from the reception for the army and police. Personally, I'd like to see a picture of Grand Duke Jean with the family for the holidays.
