    Decathlon Channel Crossing

    The recent increase in crossing attempts led our teams from Decathlon Calais, Grande-Synthe, Le Touquet Paris Plage and Boulogne sur Mer (all in North France) to suspend sale of products that could be used to cross the Channel rather than for their intended sporting application.
    In consultation with the teams we will indefinitely suspend sales of boats, kayaks in particular, which could endanger the lives of people using them for a crossing at these locations.
    The inflatable kayaks are compliant with the ISO 6185-1 standard, category IIIB (beach craft) and comply with French Division 240 regulations, sailing up to 300m from shelter.
    We are committed to never putting our customers at risk in the use of our products, whatever the circumstances.

  • Xavier-Rivoire


    It is with immense sadness and deep emotion that we regret to inform you of the sudden passing away of Xavier RIVOIRE, our Decathlon United Media Leader, on Sunday, September 5th.

    After a career that began with the sports journal ‘L’Equipe’, Xavier was an accomplished sportsman who joined Decathlon for the first time in 2012 as Media and Partnerships Manager. In 2018, Xavier decided to join France’s National Sport and Olympics Committee as Communications Director before returning to Decathlon once again.

    Highly appreciated by his teams, for many of us he was a friend whom we could trust, he was an inspiration. We will forever remember him as an endearing gentleman, a cultivated spirit, passionate for sport for which he expressed the benefits with great conviction and his unique talent. Xavier’s communicative enthusiasm and the profound human and sporting values that he carried will live on through us.

    On behalf of all Decathlon’s Teammates, we address our heartfelt condolences to his family, his loved ones, and his many friends.

    Marketing & Communication Leader
