Tokyo Olympics: Jean Quiquampoix crowned in shooting at 25 m, the riders in the bronze suit, the distress of Samir Aït Saïd ... Monday, August 2, on the edge of emotion

The shooting finally brought a medal, the most beautiful, to the French delegation which is also satisfied with the 3rd place of the riders of the con



The home stretch before the close of these Games is well underway.

The chances of French medals are dwindling but there are still a few to go for, especially in team sports, athletics, and climbing.

Two new awards were added to the previous ones, bringing the total to 23 (6 gold, 10 silver, 7 bronze).

France is still 7th in the standings.

The tears of Aït Saïd

The tradition of this daily summary is to open with Olympic gold, but once is not customary, it will be with a failure.

Finishing 4th is never a pleasure.

When your name is Samir Aït Saïd, it's even stronger.

The story of the gymnast from Val-de-Marne had everything to be perfect: hope, an injury, the loss of a parent, hope again five years later… destroyed by a new injury.

"I thought it was going to fart on the rings, and despite that, I went.

I am mad, I am mad.

I could not express myself 100%, I could win, I could… ”, says the flag bearer of the French delegation.

Because he is a hard worker, because he has the rage to win, Samir Aït Saïd has already made an appointment with the legend of the Games in three years in Paris.

Quiquampoix right on target

Tears also flowed down the cheeks of Jean Quiquampoix.

With the difference that they have a taste for happiness and a job well done.

After the silver in Rio, the Parisian of only 25 years, former fencer and confirmed cyclist, took his revenge on the 25 meters, while equaling the Olympic record (34).

“There is a lot of work upstream to be calm with your emotions,” he explains.

Afterwards, we stay focused on technique and self-confidence.

If these fundamentals are there, the automatisms speak and it unfolds.

Even Antoine Griezmann appreciated.

🇫🇷🏅 OLYMPICEEEEEE CHAMPION!



THANK YOU Jean Quiquampoix 😍😍🇫🇷🇫🇷

The truly complete suit

The march for gold was too high, but they are more than satisfied with bronze. The eventing riders were 9th after dressage, before their crazy comeback to cross country which allowed them to return to the top three nations. Great Britain and Australia ensured in front, like our blues (Christopher Six on Totem de Brecey, Karim Florent Laghouag on Triton Fontaine, and Nicolas Touzaint on Absolut Gold). For Laghouag, called at the last minute to replace Thomas Carlile, it is synonymous with the second consecutive medal after the one gleaned in Rio. For Touzaint, it's also a new charm seventeen years after gold in 2004!

Girls in team sport suffer but take the shift

The French women's teams have experienced great fears but the essential is assured.

The basketball players were allowed to lose to the tournament's ultra-favorite United States, but no more than 14 points.

Their defeat of eleven lengths (82-93) allows them to hope for a place in the semi-finals, tomorrow against Spain, undefeated in the pool.

For their part, the handball players had no choice but to dominate Brazil to see the sun continue to rise on the Japanese horizon.

It's done (29-22) but we are already waiting to see what happens next.

It will be in two days against the Netherlands, reigning world champions.

For the rest…

Some little info but not the least.

Quentin Bigot threw his hammer to 78.73m on his second try and qualified for the final.

The tricolor table tennis players bravely resisted in Singapore and China (in quarters).

Finally, Queen Simone Biles is back: after having withdrawn at the start of the all-around team competition last Tuesday due to loss of benchmarks in space, the star of the world gym is registered tomorrow.

But jute to the beam.
