The French B1 national team ready for the Paralympics !

Today, we are now 13 days away from the opening ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games ! The French B1 national team had the opportunity to meet one last time on the weekend of August 6 to 8, 2021 at the Technical Center of La Gaillette in Lens. A big thank you to them for their support throughout the preparation of the team in their way to Tokyo !

A serious training course to set the final adjustments

With a major competition approaching, intensity is not something we are trying to put in place. It was more about working on key points, repeating specific actions on which “the Blues” can make the difference in a match.

Theme of the training : set-pieces (in french)

The group talked a lot, analyzed their performances in specific work but also during mini training matches. The technical staff has been listening to the players in the development of strategies that will be used during the Games. Obviously, the details will not be mentioned here.

A last moment of sharing as a team

This training course was also an opportunity to get together as a group. Indeed, the next meeting will be at the airport on the day of departure. The moments in common had a family atmosphere mixing concentration and relaxation.

Now, each player will take advantage of the last two weeks to perfect his preparation but also to rest and spend time with his family before the big day.

Departure for Tokyo : Saturday, August 20, 2021.
