1. Rugby – Top 14: Montpellier one step away from the throne

The logic is sometimes relentless. The first against the second. The poster for the Top 14 final will face the two best teams in the regular season. On Saturday evening, Montpellier (2nd) joined Castres (1st) when they fired UBB in Nice, after an unspectacular semi-final (19-10).

2. Formula 1 – Canadian Grand Prix: Verstappen does the work, Alonso does the show

The current pole champion. A great champion in action. On Saturday evening at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit, Max Verstappen (Red Bull) put himself in a good position to establish his dominance of the championship, while Fernando Alonso (Alpine) surprised, signing the second best time. Charles Leclerc did not weigh in on the Canadian Grand Prix qualifying session, starting at the bottom of the grid recorded before it.

3. Swimming – World Championships: Merchant, Gold and the Road

An immense talent, the coach of Michael Phelps (Bob Bowman) to supervise him and genealogical assets: there was something to ignite for Léon Marchand even before the start of the World Championship. On Saturday, the fantasy came true, with the 20-year-old French swimmer winning gold in the 400 meters combined in Budapest, with the second best time in history (4’04 “28).
