Paris 2024 Olympics: the 3×3 basketball Blues are one victory away from qualifying for the Games

The Blues did it, and it’s no small feat! Led throughout almost its entire quarter-final against Germany, the French men’s 3×3 basketball team ended up winning (19-17) this Sunday in Debrecen (Hungary). In the semi-final, she will challenge Mongolia at 7:55 p.m., with the possibility of winning a ticket for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

However, the French team started the game very badly, as it quickly fell 4 to 0. The Germans were more precise, and caused a lot of problems for the Blues inside. Overwhelmed, the French often left the racket devoid of defenders.

But the Blues held on, and never fell behind by more than three points during the rest of the game. Above all, they were able to count on the two-point success of Jules Rambaut, although far from being a specialist in the exercise, to keep in touch.

France, which snatched extra time at the last minute, finally defeated the Germans during extra time, thanks to a long shot from the same Jules Rambaut (19-17). Frenchman Raphaël Wilson savored after the match: “It’s incredible. The action was supposed to be for me, high post, and the Germans defended well. Jules (Rambaut) took the shot, and he put it in! »

All that is missing is a victory for the French selection to qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The three best teams in this TQO will obtain their ticket. The Blues must therefore beat Mongolia, at 7:55 p.m., or win the match for third place. A meeting to follow on our live commentary on our site, leparisien.fr.
