The French delegation ended its first week with a great weekend marked by two new team titles.
The euphoria should come down a little at the start of the second week even if France will have strong moments this Monday, August 2 with the long-awaited return of Samir Aït-Saïd in the final of the rings.
In team sport, the basketball players will play their last group game against the Americans to win a ticket for the quarter-finals.
In sailing, the duo formed by Camille Lecointre and Aloïse Retornaz is one of the great chances for a French medal.
Here is the menu for Monday August 2.
Samir Aït-Saïd, a revenant with the rings
The images of his terrible injury during the last Olympics in Rio were sadly remembered.
Five years later, the French gymnast Samir Aït-Saïd made his comeback on the Olympic stage with a beautiful final on the rings from 10 a.m.
Now recovered from his fractured tibia fibula, the Frenchman is among the favorites and could well bring back the first medal in French gymnastics at the Tokyo Olympics.
Les Bleues du basketball face the American mountain
In the sphere of the orange ball, it is almost a necessary step for any team which claims to the Olympic coronation.
A few days after the resounding victory of the gang in Evan Fournier against Team USA, it was the women who set off for the rise of the Americans, undefeated at the Olympics since 1992 and in international competition since the 2006 World Cup.
Scheduled for 6:40 am, this match is a tall order but victory is not essential to reach the quarter-finals of the tournament.
In case of defeat of Japan against Nigeria earlier in the night, the French, virtually best third, could even climb to second place in their group, directly qualifying.
Stay the course to keep dreaming
You will have to get up at 5 am to see one of the best chances for French sailing medals at work.
It is at this time that the Breton tandem formed by Camille Lecointre and Aloïse Retornaz will set off for the ninth women's 470 double dinghy race.
The two races of the day will be important in order to approach the race for the medal on Wednesday.
If it is Aloïse Retornaz's first Olympics, the experienced Camille Lecointre had already been adorned with silver five years ago in Rio.
For fans of team sport, the handball players will be opposed to Brazil at 4 am.
On the combat sport side, wrestler Koumba Larroque will play her round of 16 in the -68 kg category from 4.30 a.m.
Who says second week says athletics.
In the hammer throw, Quentin Bigot will enter the track at 2am, then at 3:45 am, Gemima Joseph will try to grab a place in the semi-final of the 200m.
This tenth day will end with the final of the 3,000 m steeplechase in which Alexis Phelut will represent France.
