Tuesday July 27 - day 4

The French of the day

Like yesterday, there will be heavy Tuesday on the French side at the Tokyo Olympics.

Hopefully only less than 5th places and more medals.

We are obviously counting on the five-time world champion Clarisse Agbegnenou to get her first Olympic gold medal, five years after silver in Rio.

Its recent performances inevitably lead to optimism.

At the start of the morning, we will also watch the adventures of Pauline Ferrand-Prévot and her young and promising compatriot Loana Lecomte on the women's mountain bike race.

Again, the chances of a medal are real.

For the women's handball team, the time is not yet to think about the podium but to get out of the pool.

After their inaugural victory against Hungary, the French will come face to face with Spain.

The star of the day

We will have to look to the basins to find a big name today.

Three-time gold medalist in Rio, Ryan Murphy, will defend his first title in the 100m backstroke final.

The American has already proven his superiority the day before in the half and is a favorite.

For the brave, it will take place in the middle of the night, between 3 and 4 a.m.

The medal that we (really) not expect

It's a bit like the game of the start of the Olympics.

Find the right surprise, the one that will save us from the rotten day.

We hadn't seen too much, too much coming from Romain Cannone or Sarah-Léonie Cysique, but today it's the right one.

And we decided that it would be Marie-Zélia Lafont on canoe slalom.

A small medal to crown the work of a career, that can be nice, right?

The other events not to be missed

If only one had to be chosen, it would be special GP team dressage.

Just for the absolutely lunar name.

And it is not the absence of French that will hold us back.

We will be there.

And you ?

The reading board

If you don't know the young archer Lisa Barbelin, it's time to get to know each other.

His particuliarity ?

She uses her love of the piano and music in general in the practice of her discipline.

As long as the melody is sweet for his entry into the running tonight.
