FFN Release Full List of Athletes Who Will Represent France in Rio

The French Federation (FFN) held a press conference to announce the entire men’s and women’s teams who will wear the Blue, White, and Red of France at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

After only two women and six men achieved the difficult French time standards to compete in individual events in Rio, the National Technical Director (DTN), Jacques Favre, and his committee spent two days deliberating the expansion of the list following the French Elite National Championships and Olympic Selection meet, which ended on Sunday, April 3.

Here is the full list:
