At the European Swimming Championships, they won the first French medal in this category for 10 years.
On August 1, 2012, the Yannick Agnel generation had won a second place at the Olympic Games, behind the United States.
To reach its third place, France had to do without its star of the moment, Léon Marchand, who does not participate in these European championships.
Hadrien Salvan, Wissam-Amazigh, Enzo Tesic and Roman Fuchs, all born between 1997 and 2000, announce great prospects for the Blues in the years to come with this medal.
“Making all our work happen”
A promising performance to which the swimmers reacted after their final.
“A medal is the embodiment of all our work for years.
We have a big collective and today it is a great pleasure to make a podium, ”said Hadrien Salvan at the microphone of France TV, all smiles.
Earlier this Thursday, another French team was delighted with a historic result.
In the synchronized swimming team technical event, Les Bleues won the first French collective medal in the discipline at the European Championships since 2000. They too came back with bronze.
