The French Basketball Federation has published a documentary on its social networks which looks back on the qualification of the French women’s team during the Olympic Qualification Tournament in Bourges in early February.
The French women’s basketball team qualified for the Tokyo Olympics this summer at the end of the Olympic Qualification Tournament in Bourges from February 6 to 9. The French Basketball Federation (FFBB) released a documentary last Tuesday entitled “A ticket for Tokyo”, retracing this event. Throughout the week at the Palais des Sports du Prado, Julien Bacot, provider of the FFBB for a few years, followed the players and the staff with his camera. In this 16-minute short film, we find images of the matches against Australia, Brazil and Puerto Rico, training sessions, talks from coach Valérie Garnier, as well as testimonials from the players.

The FFBB published this short film on its social networks. This is not a first. Already in 2012, Les Bleues was entitled to their documentary before the London Games, then after their medal. Regularly, a web-series reveals behind the scenes of the French men’s team. The FFBB keeps track of the performances of these formations, which made history by qualifying both for the third time in a row for the Olympics. These videos broadcast to as many people as possible promote their performances and create a link with the general public, as well as with committees and leagues.
