Terebo and Gastaldello will make the Games, Duhamel champion of France but not qualified in swimming

This Monday at the French swimming championships in Chartres, Emma Terebo and Béryl Gastaldello qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympics in the 100m backstroke. Cyrielle Duhamel will not participate.

Swimmers Emma Terebo and Béryl Gastaldello managed to secure their ticket for the Paris Olympic Games in the 100m backstroke after a very dense race, Monday at the French Championships in Chartres.

Terebo won in 58 sec 79, becoming the first French woman to swim the distance in less than 59 sec. “I can not believe it! I am relieved and happy with this French record,” she reacted. She will be accompanied in Paris by Béryl Gastaldello, 2nd in 59 sec 17.

To see the La Défense Arena pool, where the Olympic events will take place in six weeks, they had to swim in less than 59 sec 99, the minimum set by the Federation. At the end of the race, undoubtedly the toughest of the competition, there were four of them to have achieved this time but, due to regulations, only the first two could be selected. And Mary-Ambre Moluh (3rd) and Pauline Mahieu (4th) will not compete in the Games over this distance.
