A l'issue du tournoi de qualification olympique, les équipes de France masculine et féminine connaissent désormais leurs adversaire lors du tournoi des JO de Paris 2024, dès le 24 juillet.

Twelve teams were competing this weekend in each table, with the last place available to compete in the Games in Paris, during which the rugby sevens tournament will be played from July 24 to 30 at the Stade de France.

For the men, the final pitted the two favorite teams of this repechage tournament against each other: Great Britain, in silver in Rio in 2016, and South Africa, in bronze in of these same Olympics.

It was the "Blitzboks" who won the final 14 to 5 against the British, carried by an enormous defense in the second period after taking off thanks to a second try just before the break. In Paris, they will face New Zealand, Ireland and Japan in a pool.

Fiji, the United States and Uruguay for the Blues

The Blues, led by their star Antoine Dupont, will find themselves opposed in the groups to the double reigning Olympic champions Fiji, as well as the United States and Uruguay.

In the women's draw, China assured its status as favorite. Undefeated during the repechage tournament and largely victorious in the semi-final against Poland (40 to 7), the Chinese then dominated Kenya in the final 24 to 7, and will play their second Games after Tokyo.

In Paris, the Chinese will find themselves in a particularly difficult group, including the reigning champions New Zealand and the Fijians, bronze in Tokyo. The French, who won silver in Tokyo, find themselves in an affordable group, with the United States, Japan and Brazil.
