Basketball: French multi-medalist Isabelle Yacoubou bows out

French basketball legend Isabelle Yacoubou announced that she would end her professional playing career at the age of 37, via a press release published on the website of her first and last club, Tarbes Gespe Bigorre Basket.

After several years abroad, spent notably in Istanbul or Moscow, the Frenchwoman returned to France to play three seasons in the Bourges club, before joining the team where she played between 2005 and 2010, Tarbes GB. After a full season in 2022-2023 (15.9 points on average), the 1.90 meter center contracted an injury during a match at Charleville-Mézières on January 24. She had to give up continuing her professional career with immediate effect, despite an attempt at treatment and rehabilitation to be able to finish her season - and undoubtedly her career - to be able to conclude in a better way.

International basketball star, Isabelle Yacoubou was a silver medalist at the 2012 Olympic Games with the “Braqueuses”, but also a gold medalist, twice silver, and once bronze in the European championships, for a total of 147 selections for the French team. She won, among others, a Euroleague European championship, one Eurocup, two French championships including one with the TGB, four in Italy, one in Spain, and one in Russia. On a personal level, the pivot was twice MVP of the French championship, once of Italy, elected in the major five of Euro 2013, and in the major five of the 2022-2023 French championship.
