Exceptional Olympic sports program to follow today on L’Équipe channels

Volleyball, triathlon, modern pentathlon, tennis, swimming… the Olympic disciplines are in full swing on the channels of the L’Equipe group. Overview of the menu for an exceptional Saturday.

Cassandre Beaugrand still victorious

They will certainly be ones to watch for an Olympic title in Paris: the French triathletes are out in Cagliari. Cassandre Beaugrand at the head of the line, at the forefront with the best in the world, who will aim for gold in the capital. The Frenchwoman brilliantly won this Saturday morning in a very high level race. Her compatriot Emma Lombardi finished in a nice 4th place.

The boys will be on track from 3:15 p.m., live on the L’Equipe channel.

France – Türkiye to get off to a good start

Winners at the opening of their Nations League against Bulgaria, then dominated by Slovenia, the French Olympic champions held their own against the revamped United States, and are aiming for a third success in 4 matches against Turkey. A victory and the first results would be very positive for this start of the competition, with a view to the Olympic Games. Starts at 4 p.m.

Oteiza and Clouvel in preparation

In preparation and in search of points for qualification, the French Marie Oteiza and Élodie Clouvel experienced a roller coaster during the modern pentathlon World Cup final in Ankara (Turkey) this Saturday morning. In the lead after the semi-finals, and again before the final laser run event, the Blues again sinned in pistol shooting, and only finished 8th and 9th. They therefore still have work to do on this essential discipline, as Oteiza and Clouvel dominate in fencing, horse riding and swimming.

1st ATP final for Mpetshi Perricard

He will probably not be at the Paris Games, but Frenchman Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard is playing his first final on the ATP circuit, at home in Lyon, for the Open Parc. Author of a superb week, notably defeating Hugo Gaston and Alexander Bublik, the 20-year-old goes up against the experienced Argentinian Tomas Etcheverry, a clay court specialist. Final at 2:30 p.m. on L’Equipe live 1.

Start of Mare Nostrum meetings

A few weeks before the French Championships, the last major event in the pools before the Olympic Games, the Mare Nostrum meetings begin this Saturday. On the program, two days in Canet-en-Roussillon, before heading to Barcelona on Wednesday and Thursday, then concluding in Monaco next weekend. Maxime Grousset will be the leader of the French delegation, also with Marie Wattel, Mélanie Hénique, Yohan N’Doye Brouard and many others. Florent Manaudou could join the blue clan during the week.

Betclic Elite, German Cup and Super League

Other events are to be followed on the L’Equipe channel bouquet, and not the least important ones. Match 2 of the Betclic Élite semi-final between Paris Basketball and ASVEL, at 6 p.m. The Parisians, largely dominant in match 1, want to confirm and make the break against the Villeurbanne who are lacking in identity.

Quite the opposite for the Leverkusen players, still undefeated on German soil, and who are aiming for the Cup-Championship double. Heavily beaten, for the first time this season in the Europa League final, Xabi Alonso’s Bayer is the favorite in the German Cup final, facing Kaiserslautern, residents of the 2nd Division. Kick-off at 8 p.m. on the L’Equipe channel.

If the rugby poster of the day is at XV, between Toulouse and Leinster (follow the live commentary), the one which follows at XIII, between the Catalan Dragons and the Warrington Wolves also promises great play. The two formations, at elbow- neck and neck in 2nd place in the ranking, meet at the Gilbert Brutus stadium in Perpignan at 6:30 p.m. Live on L’Equipe live 1.
