Les Blues in the final of the Tokyo Olympics against New Zealand

Blue won the semifinals of the Olympic Rugby Sevens against Great Britain (26-19). They are sure to win a medal, gold or silver. To learn the metal, they will challenge New Zealand in the final at 11am.

From the start, Anne-Cecil took control of the Blue crowd after a beautiful overflow on the touchline from Syophony. Seraphim Okemba added another attempt after an intense race. Before the Great Britain break (21-12), Corey Bertrand finished a good tricolor.

Early in the second half, Siobhani scored twice to give France a slight edge. Hannah Smith scored a try to restart Great Britain at the tight end of the game. But the French defense did what was necessary to ensure this historic victory, in the Fiji (12-5), Brazil (40-5), Canada (31-0) pools, and China (24-10) quarters.
