After beating the USA in the quarter-finals, Manon Brunet, Cécilia Berder and Charlotte Lembach were scared but dominated Italy to secure another medal.
Manon Brunet will leave Tokyo with two medals! After the bronze in the individual, the sabreuse took part in the qualification of the French team for the final of the team event at the expense of Italy. A semi-final that has long been one-sided for the Blue. Aside from a less obvious stint for Charlotte Lambach against Irene Vecchi, the Habs widened a gap of sixteen touches after the first six assaults. Trying everything for everything, the Italians launched their replacement Michela Battiston… and it totally revived them. Opposed to a Charlotte Lambach lacking confidence, the Transalpine scored the trifle of 18 touches to bring his team to just three lengths. Fortunately, Manon Brunet assured against Irene Vecchi before Cecilia Berder finished the job against Rossella Gregorio. With this victory of six touches (45-39), the Tricolores assure the French Olympic team a new medal before this final which will oppose them to Russia, falling from South Korea (45-26).
