On Tuesday, April 25, Outward Bound Monaco (OBM) teamed up 25 members, between the ages of 14 to 18, with some of Monaco’s top sport celebrities for an amusing evening of bowling at Ni Box, sponsored by Samy Sass of Sass Café. Click Here To See the Photo Gallery (Below)

Amongst the celebrities who gave their time to be with the young people were two-time world show polo champion and captain of the Monte Carlo Polo Team Rommy Gianni , Tiffany Cromwell (professional cyclist), Paula Radcliffe (world record holder for the women’s marathon), Patrice Servelle (Monegasque 4 time Olympic bobsledder) and Mick Doohan (five-time motorsport world champion) and his son Jack, 14, a talented young racing driver, to act as captains for the association’s first bowling activity.

Various press journalists were in attendance and Mick Doohan, who has returned to Monaco after living in his native Australia for the past 18 years, told Monaco Life, “Opportunities like this event communicate team work and problem solving to kids. And winning is great, but you learn more from losing and it keeps you humble.”

Marina, 14, and Ronda, 15, completed a one-week survival program last summer in Ullswater, with a group of three other girls and five boys.

As part of their training, the friends had to hike 56 km over three days, carrying on their backs tents, sleeping bags, gas burners and other supplies. There’s also the“ Leave No Trace” philosophy, so everything (think toilets) has to be carried out of the forest and disposed elsewhere.

“I really appreciated the little things when I returned home,” Ronda told Monaco Life.

Noaro Frères, the Stelios Foundation, James Mitchell Foundation, Rommy Gianni and John Michael Ridziwill are currently local sponsors and some of them were at this very enjoyable event.
