Clap of the end of the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday August 8 with several team sports finals for women.

First of all, the French will try to win their first Olympic title in handball against Russia. A final with the taste of revenge since the Russians had beaten the Blue in the final five years ago at the Rio Games. It is also the opportunity to get a historic double for the French handball, after the victory of the Blues on Saturday against Denmark.

No French women in the basketball and volleyball final, but Americans. In basketball, Team USA will face a surprising team from Japan. In volleyball, it is the Brazilians who will try to recover their Olympic title lost in 2016, after their victories in 2008 and 2012 against the United States.

Finally, the last athletics event takes place at midnight with the men’s marathon. Among the 106 participants, three French will be there: Nicolas Navarro, Morhad Amdouni and Hassan Chahdi.
