Tiago Ferreira received the gold medal in the “best European tram driver” category, Luxtram said in a press release on Monday.
The Luxembourg team--comprised of tram operators Ferreira and Samira Belbachir with their coach (and training manager) François Ceglie--placed fourth overall.
Twenty-five teams representing 21 European countries participated in the championship, which was held 3-4 May. Drivers had five minutes each to complete a course with six challenges, including precision stopping, speed and distance estimation, and “tram bowling”.
Erm, is everything OK there, Brussels? We're a bit worried about you.
