French athletes who won medals at the 29th Summer Universiade in Taipei last month have been honoured at two receptions in Paris.
Celebrations took place to mark the International Day of University Sport which was recognised worldwide.
The events were staged at the Ministry of Sports in the French capital, at the invitation of Sports Minister Laura Flessel, and at the Paris headquarters of main sponsor MAIF, at the invitation of its President Dominique Mahé.
Forty-six French athletes won medals at Taipei 2017 in all, including a silver for the men's football team.
France's finishing tally on the medals table was 17, four golds, five silvers and eight bronzes.
In all, 37 of the medal winning athletes were in attendance at the celebration events, held in the city which will host the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.
They were joined by teams from the French Federation of University Sports (FFSU) and representatives from sporting governing bodies and partner institutions.
Gold medallists from earlier editions of the Universiade, and flag-bearers of French delegations to the Universiade, also attended the events.
The FFSU is already preparing for 2019, which will see the 29th Winter Universiade in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, and the 30th Summer Universiade in Naples, Italy.
