Olympics: bitter silver from Cysique, Brunet in bronze, no medal for table tennis ... It was this Monday, July 26 in Tokyo


Two more medals for the French delegation. Judokate Sarah-Léonie Cysique went very close to gold but was disqualified

Two more charms in France's medal table at the Tokyo Olympics.

Judokate Sarah-Léonie Cysique went on to win silver in -57 kg, after being disqualified in the final.

In fencing, Manon Brunet adorned herself with bronze in saber.

For the rest, a complicated day for the French.

The mixed doubles in table tennis failed in the small final for 3rd place.

In mountain biking, Victor Koretzky and Jordan Sarrou could not do better than a Top 10. Triathlon favorite, Vincent Luis finished only 13th.

Fortunately, the French volleyball and 3x3 basketball teams have recovered.

We summarize what happened on Monday July 26 in Tokyo.

Cysique, so close to the ultimate dream

A bitter-tasting silver medal.

It is difficult to fully smile for the judokate Sarah-Léonie Cysique.

All fire, all fire, all day in her -57 kg category, the Frenchwoman failed in the final… On disqualification.

A rare event in judo, especially in the final of the Olympic Games.

The native of Sarcelles is guilty of a movement deemed dangerous for her own physical integrity.

There was a minute and eighteen seconds left before the Golden Score when the Frenchwoman fell headfirst onto the tatami as her rival, Kosovar Nora Gjakova, circled her from behind.

A fairly violent shock that the referee viewed in the video before inflicting the fatal red card for Cysique.

“I find that a bit unfair.

The referees have their own vision and you can't interfere too much.

Looking at the day, obviously it's good.

But it is not the medal that I wanted ”, reacted the French judokate at the microphone of France Televisions.

Brunet, in bronze, erases the trauma of Rio

The French fencer stopped at the foot of the podium in 2016. Again in the race for 3rd place in Tokyo, Manon Brunet did not miss her chance this time.

Opposed to the Hungarian Marton, the tricolor sabreuse dominated the small final (15-6) with her head and shoulders before bursting into tears in the arms of her coach and her teammates of the French team.

One small regret for the Frenchwoman: her missed semi-final against the Russian Pozdniakova.

“The smile is back!

I was so disappointed with what I had done halfway.

I just cried and thought I wasn't able to come back and fight for a bronze medal a “second” time (after Rio).

The team and the coach re-mobilized me, my friend

(the saber Bolade Apithy)

called me from France for ten minutes to tell me:

fight, have fun, it's the Olympics ”

Brunet told the microphone from France Televisions.

Table tennis, mountain biking, shooting, triathlon… Chain disappointments

In the mixed doubles event in table tennis, the French Lebesson and Yuan failed at the foot of the podium.

The tricolor pair simply did not measure up to Taipei's double, Lin-Cheng (11-8, 11-7, 11-8, 11-5).

A severe defeat in four sets for the Blues who missed out on their match.

In mountain biking, Victor Koretzky and Jordan Sarrou also failed to grab a place on the podium despite their presence in the Top 10 of the event (5th and 9th), dominated by the Tom Pidcock phenomenon.

Another chance for a missed medal, Eric Delaunay completely missed out on his final when he was the author of the Olympic skeet record in qualifying.

Ditto for Martin Thomas in a canoe, who was nevertheless the best time in the semi-finals.

The two men finished 5th.

After their frank defeat against the United States (0-3) for their entry into the running, the Blues recovered by easily dominating Tunisia in three short heats (25-21, 25-11, 25-21).

The opportunity to heal their goal-average and to prepare as well as possible for their third match against Argentina on Wednesday (7.20 am), surely decisive for the qualification.

JO: The Blues are moving forward!
