Swimming : He was beaten by Stravius et Mignon…
The Olympic champion, has not passed the championships of France. A favourite in the 100 metres, Florent Manaudou finished third in the final, beaten by Jeremy Stravius and Clement Mignon, who have both now qualified for the Olympic Games this year in Rio. His time of 48’10 was not quite quick enough, needing 47’97 and 48’01 to be able to qualify.
Triple world champion in Kazan last summer, the brother of Laure Manaudou, seem to weaken in the last few metres after starting the first 50 metres very fast.
He still has the 50
Disappointed, the swimmer did not wish to respond to microphone of the beIN Sports channel. On Sunday he will seek his Olympic qualification for the 50 meters, his favourite distance where he was crowned at the London 2012 Olympics .
