already European speed champion in 2017, Sébastien Vigier bissing on Sunday. The French even took two medals with Rayan Helal in bronze, and another third with Victoire Berteau in bronze at points.

In the image of swimming, track cycling continues to fulfill its role wonderfully for the French team, during the European championships this August. In Munich, Sunday, it was Sébastien Vigier who went to pick gold on speed, against Jack Carlin in the final.

The 27-year-old Laugher, who was England's flag bearer at the opening ceremony last week, continued a run that also included gold in Glasgow in 2014 and on Australia's Gold Coast four years ago.

The three awards of the day each won their second charm, after the team money for Vigier and Helal as well as bronze - in teams, always - for Berteau. The other two had been the 60% work of Benjamin Thomas, in gold on the race for points and on team pursuit (with Thomas Denis, Quentin Lafargue, Valentin Tabellion and Thomas Boudat, the latter not participating in the final ). In short, it is a real harvest which therefore continues for the French, necessarily encouraging two years from Paris 2024.
