black day for the French people Shooting, Wednesday: After eliminating Jean-Charles Valladonte and Thomas Cherault from the start of the 32 finals, Pierre Plehoun lost to 16th in the singles tournament at Tokyo Olympics.
Pierre Plehoun was the only French bowler to make it through the first round thanks to a 6-4 victory over American Jack Williams, after a very good duel. But the 31-year-old archer couldn’t do anything in the next round against one of the top candidates, South Korean Kim Woo Jin, winner 6-2.
Earlier, Jean-Charles Valladonte, the 2016 Rio Olympics silver medalist, and Thomas Cherault, were eliminated in the final 32.
The last chance to win a French medal now rests on the shoulders of this year’s European champion Lisa Barbelin, who will begin her solo campaign on Thursday against Italy’s Tatiana Andreoli.
The French record is currently very disappointing after a poor hit by male archers, then elimination in the mixed doubles quarter-finals, exit from the men’s team’s eighth event and this wasted day at the singles level.
