Someone is getting busy... After the reception for the soldiers and policemen this afternoon, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were at the Casino in Mondorf-les-Bains to gamble away the Grünewald - That was an inside joke, if you do not know what it means check question 20 of the Luxembourgish section of our FAQ. And yes, I know it's bad when you need to explain your own jokes. - to attend the annual sports gala hosted by the Luxembourgish sports press earlier this evening.

During the event Luxembourg's Sportspeople of the Year were honoured. Triathlete Dirk Bockel came first in the category Sportsman of the Year ahead of swimmer Laurent Carnol and cyclist Bob Jungels. The female category was won by cyclist Christine Majerus with tennis player Mandy Minella and judoka Marie Muller coming in second and third. Handball team HB Esch won the award for Team of the Year ahead of football (or soccer if you come from another part of the world) teams FC Déifferdeng 03 and the national team.
