Main Nue--Pilota Ttiki feature article on Christophe Sorhondo

If you've watched some of the great Elite Pro Main Nue offered by Esku Pilota's Youtube site, watch for the judge (referee). He stands on the right side of the court. Chances are, more often than not, that man will be Christophe Sorhondo. He referees around 150 matches per year. Pilota Ttixi has released a very interesting and informative article concerning Sorhondo. It covers his background, how he came to be a referee, and some of the issues surrounding his vocation.
