This Thursday, Yohann Ndoye Brouard brought a third medal to the French team, at the European Swimming Championships in Budapest in Hungary, by winning bronze in the 100m backstroke. On the other hand, Florent Manaudou was taken out in the semi-finals of the 50m butterfly.
The French swimming team is now at three medals, on the side of the European Championships in Budapest in Hungary. This Thursday, Yohann Ndoye Brouard, aged only 20, won bronze in the distance of the 100 meters backstroke. The young Habs, who played his very first final at the international level for his first international championship in long course, finished tied with the Greek Apostolos Christou, thanks to a time of 52 ”97, that is to say his personal best. This final was dominated by the Romanian Robert Andrei Glinta, in 52 ”88, while the Spaniard Hugo Gonzalez de Oliveira, in 52” 90, took the silver medal, over the same distance. As for the second Frenchman present in the final, namely Mewen Tomac, he finished in fifth place, in a time of 53.00, after having cracked at the end of the race.
On the other hand, the final of the 200 meters freestyle will be disputed without French. Indeed, during the semi-finals over this distance, Jordan Pothain could not do better than 13th in 1’47 “60 while Jonathan Atsu only signed the 16th time, in 1’48” 07. There will also be no final for Florent Manaudou, over 50 butterfly meters. The Habs did not pass the semifinals, after having signed the eleventh time in 23 ”41. In front of him, Maxime Grousset finished ninth in 23 ”39, but that was not enough either.
