Golden dreams: Riner and Dicko stars of the tatami mats
The star of French judo is back!
It is in itself a great event, which even deserves to get up at 4 o'clock this Friday morning, time of the entry into contention of Teddy Riner at the Tokyo Olympics.
The task promises to be even more difficult than in London and Tokyo for the French champion, 32 years old.
If all goes well, after five fights, Teddy Riner can dream of his third gold medal.
The semi-finals start at 10 a.m.
At the same time, the young Romane Dicko, 21, winner of the last tournaments in Doha and Paris, will start with a good chance of a medal in the +78 kg category.

Medal hopes: fencing and BMX spearheading
He had dazzled the Tokyo fencing hall with his talent and his daring.
Romain Cannone, Olympic epee champion on Sunday, returns this Friday for the team event with Yannick Borel, Alexandre Bardenet and Ronan Gustin (substitute).
Maybe with a new medal in sight.
The chances of the podium are also on the BMX side, with three men (Sylvain André, Joris Daudet, Romain Mahieu) in the semi-finals from 3 hours and Axelle Etienne in the women a quarter of an hour later.
Any finals start at 4:40 a.m.
To a lesser extent, we will follow the semi-finals (at 7 am) and perhaps the final of Kayak K1 with Boris Neveu.
Then the possible quarters, semi and final of Lisa Barbelin in archery, from 8 am.
Good surprises cannot be ruled out.
The girls of rugby 7 will play their quarter-final at 9:30 am. The opponent will be known during the night, depending on the results of the last group matches.
Still in team sports, the French handball players, already qualified for the quarterfinals after three wins in three games, face Spain at 7.15 a.m.
Their volleyball counterparts, them, play their survival in the Olympic tournament against Russia at 2:45 pm Just like the French women's basketball team, for whom victory is imperative against Nigeria (10:20 am).
