Difficult start to the day for the Blues in Tokyo. In basketball, the French were beaten for their entry into the running (70-74) against Japan.



Complicated alarm clock from France for fans of the Games.

This Tuesday July 27 is once again placed under the sign of disillusionment.

In basketball, the French women's team was surprised at the start.

Ever more complicated Olympic Games for the French delegation in swimming.

Judo is, once again, the savior of the French Games with an imperial Clarisse Agbégnénou and qualified in the half.

We will summarize for you what happened last night in Tokyo.

Agbégnénou heading to the semi-finals

The day had started perfectly for Clarisse Agbégnénou. 20 seconds on the tatami and the tricolor flag carrier qualified for the quarter-finals in -63 kg. An express victory over ippon, of course, against Cape Verdean Sandrine Billiet. Her second fight went to the end of four minutes but the big favorite for Olympic gold never trembled against the Dutch Juul Franssen. Here is the five-time world champion qualified in the semi-final thanks to a waza-ari sufficient to win.

🥋⚡✨ The golden dream continues for Clarisse Agbegnenou!

Bonus bonus: A clear table for the gold medal.

The Japanese Miku Tashiro, double vice world champion and main rival of the Frenchwoman was eliminated in 1/4.

Next fight from 10 am to already secure a medal.

Basketball, a surprise defeat to begin with ...

Very bad news for the French basketball team.

The French, recent vice-champions of Europe, lost in their opening match at the Tokyo Games against the host country (70-74).

A surprise defeat against the theoretically weakest opponent in their pool.

A third consecutive setback against Japan after the Rio Olympics and a friendly match in 2016. The France team was moved by the all-terrain aggressiveness of the locals.

🏀🇯🇵⚡🇫🇷 A complicated start to the tournament for the Blue, who lost 74-70 against Japan, incredible three-point skill.

However, the band of Sandrine Gruda, excellent this morning (18 points, 9 rebounds) led the entire first part of the game even if the gap at halftime was still tight (36-34).

It took a catastrophic start to the third quarter (no basket in almost five minutes) to let the Japanese pass (39-47) and crack in the money-time.

The Blue will have to pull themselves together quickly!

Always so complicated for French swimming

Continuation of the competitions and still no medal in swimming. Worse, the French night only resulted in eliminations in the semi-finals. Charlotte Bonnet disappointed by not even winning her ticket for the final in the 200m freestyle. The Frenchwoman finished 6th in her half in 1′57′'35. It is not a surprise but it is the same observation for Cyrielle Duhamel. 6th in his 1/2 in 200m medley in 2′10′'84, the Olympic competition stops there. For the young Léon Marchand, these are the Learning Games. The 19-year-old tricolor finished in last place in his 1/2 in the 200m butterfly, in 1′55′'68.

The good performances to report

Excellent start to the Taekwondo tournament for Althéa Laurin.

The French European champion easily got rid of the Mexican Briseida Acosta in +67 kg (21-3).

In the quarterfinals, it should be much more difficult against China's Zheng Shuyin.
