Difficult Monday for the French team at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Blues continued the disappointments last night, with the poor performance of Vincent Luis, only 13th in the triathlon of which he was the immense favorite.

In swimming, the French fell to 6th place in the 4x100m freestyle relay, far behind star Caeleb Dressel's United States.

The counter therefore remains stuck at three medals for the French delegation, with one medal of each metal. 

The information to remember:

  • Vincent Luis, big favorite of the triathlon, finished only 13th 

  • The 4x100m freestyle relay finished in 6th place in the final

  • In surfing, the French Johanne Defay, world number 2, was out in the round of 16

What you missed last night: No medal for the 4x100m freestyle relay.

 The French 4x100m relay failed to create the feat and finished sixth in the final. Grousset, Manaudou, Mignon and Metella finished far from the United States, Olympic champions ahead of Italy and Australia. 

What you missed last night: surf disappointment for Johanne Defay.

 The French Johanne Defay, world n ° 2 on the pro circuit, was out in the knockout stages of the surfing events. Defay, great hope for a French medal for the first participation of surfing in the Olympic program, obtained a score of 9.40 against 10.84 for the Portuguese Yolanda Hopkins, who is playing in the 2nd division on the pro world circuit (QS). There remains a Habs still in contention, Pauline Aod, who climbed to the round of 16 after a draft.

What you missed last night: the enormous disillusionment for Vincent Luis.

It is an understatement to say that it is a poor performance for Vincent Luis. The French, double reigning world champion, finished only 13th in the triathlon, won by Norwegian Kristian Blummenfelt. Vincent Luis held his place during the 40 km of cycling, before breaking down during the 10 km of running, quickly giving up all his chances of offering France a first podium in this discipline.
