Amel Majri takes top honors at Lions du Sport awards
The City of Lyon celebrated its annual Lions du Sport ceremony highlighting the three best local athletes (out of 11 candidates) of 2018, with Amel Majri taking top honors by winning the Lion d'Or award. The French international and OL women's team star succeeds tennis player Caroline Garcia.
Majri won her fifth Champions League title in 2018, as well as another French league crown to cap off a brilliant year. OL men's team captain Nabil Fekir, who took home the Lion de Bronze last year, received the Lion d'Argent this time around.
As a reminder, former OL star Alexandre Lacazette won top honors in 2014 by earning the Lion d'Or. Nearly 22,000 online votes were cast this year - more than 5,000 votes than last year's tally.
