Mauritius hosted the 10th edition of the Indian Ocean Island Games officially known as “Jeux des Iles de l’Ocean Indien” (“JIOI”) from the 19th to 28th July 2019. Athletes from 7 participating islands namely Mauritius, Seychelles, Comoros, Madagascar, Mayotte, Reunion and Maldives gathered to compete in the following disciplines: Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Swimming, Football, weightlifting, Table Tennis, Volleyball and rugby amongst others.
The JIOI was a good occasion for all of us to remember that sports have a significant socio-economic, cultural and political impact on society.
Mauritius has proudly won for the 1st time in 40 years the JIOI.
The Rugby, a sport which is closer to the Ciel Group values, has been sponsored by the CIEL Group.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE ATHLETES FOR THEIR ACHIEVEMENT!!
