Laure Manaudou, the great reconciliation confirmed!

While she has long been at odds with the press, Laure Manaudou will once again be a consultant for France Télévisions for the Olympic Games.

Barely a month before the start of the Olympic Games, France Télévisions has revealed its system in detail. As expected, the public service will dedicate its two premium channels France 2 and France 3 to the event, the first to broadcast the highlights while the second will focus on team sports. While France 5 will take over during the news and religious broadcasts, the digital channel Paris 2024 will broadcast board and urban sports.

And for the event, France TV enlisted the services of an impressive array of consultants with no less than 82 specialists. Among them, Tony Parker, Laurent Tillie, Jérôme Fernandez, Brahim Asloum, Vincent Clerc and Stéphane Diagana. Swimming will be commented on by Camille Lacourt and Laure Manaudou. The former 400 meter freestyle specialist will be on familiar ground.

“I have often been at war with journalists”

The Olympic champion in Athens was in fact already alongside Alexandre Boyon at the World Championships in 2015 in Kazan or at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016. This reconversion behind the microphones was also surprising given her relationship with journalists when she was active. “ During my career, I have often been at war with journalists. Today, I understand that everyone must do their job “, she confided to La Provence.

“I think at the time I was a little bit sadshe explained. But in the end this media coverage was good for swimming because it made young people want to do it. Today, it’s also more professional, better organized, whereas in my time, it wasn’t at all. »

As in Rio, Laure Manaudou will be close to follow the performances of her brother, Florent, who hopes to win a fourth medal in Paris in the 50-meter freestyle.
