It’s a pretty harvest of medals for the French delegation at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. By winning bronze during the single scull final, rower Nathalie Benoit signs the twentieth French medal. She came behind the queen of the discipline, the Norwegian Birgit Lovise Roekkum Skarstein, and the Israeli Moran Samuel.
Nathalie Benoit, 41, is therefore back on an Olympic podium, nine years after her silver medal won in the same discipline, in London. The rower has multiple sclerosis.
Yesterday, the triathlete Alexis Hanquinquant offered France its third gold medal. This Sunday, the Habs are also guaranteed to win silver in table tennis thanks to Mateo Boheas, and other medals are hoped for in athletics.
