If we were to compare Maxime Hueber-Moosbrugger to a basketball player, we could certainly consider him to be “in the zone” today. You know, that trance-like state that wants you to succeed at just about anything you do.
In this month of September 2022, and so to speak since the middle of the 2021 season, there is Mulhouse, 26, returning nearly all of his 3-pointers, which, in triathlon/duathlon parlance, means he wins just about every race. in which he participates.
Over the past month, the native of Bas-Rhinois thus won the first stage of the Triathlon European Cup of his career, on September 4 in Alhandra (Portugal), then was crowned duathlon European champion, on September 17 in Bilbao (Spain), before also winning the Division 1 Duathlon Grand Prix Final, on September 25 in Avallon (Yonne), wearing the colors of his Metz Triathlon club.
His only “loss” in the meantime? A 6th place in the final of the FFTri D1 Grand Prix (this time triathlon), among Olympic and/or world medalists. A string of high-flying performances that opens up real prospects for him in the race to qualify for the Paris-2024 Olympic Games.

A rise in power that has been rewarded with six selections for the France squad since March, the last two of which fell during the September rally. A poster a few weeks before the World Cup in Qatar?
Happiness never comes alone, the right Piston scored his first goal for the Phocaeans on Friday at Angers, while assisting in the left channel. An action, with a step over and a chained blow, that materialized all the confidence that today lives in the boy from Osthoffen.
This Tuesday, Jonathan Clauss, the player most used by his coach Igor Tudor at OM, will live his third Champions League game against Sporting Lisbon. We can’t wait for the rest of the story…
