Tennis-Shooting incident stops Laporte from competing


30-March-2012

This followed the fatal shootings of three children and their teacher at the Ozar Hatorah Jewish day school. After the incident, all activities in Toulouse were cancelled.

Laporte, however, took part in a training programme where he played twice daily with players in his age group on clay court.

Coach Frederic Canale, who accompanied Laporte, said it is very unfortunate that such a situation developed. He added that the tournament would have been a good opportunity for Laporte to measure his level of play with that of other French players.
