Three new French medalists, Tuesday, August 31, at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. Loïc Vergnaud, a 42-year-old paracyclist, won silver in the road time trial in the H5 category. The Roannais, vice-world champion in 2021 in time trial and road race, logically bowed to the Dutchman Mitch Valize. He is ahead of Irishman Gary O’Reilly.
A little earlier, still in cycling, another Frenchman, Alexandre Léauté, completed his collection. Already a gold medalist in the C2 pursuit and silver in the kilometer time trial, he won bronze in the C2 road cycling time trial. Same metal for Florian Jouanny in the H2 time trial, bringing the total of French medals so far to 31.
