Rugby 7s: when Antoine Dupont wants to do the Olympics, “we don’t give him orders”, says Florian Grill

Asked about Antoine Dupont's desire to play the next Olympic Games with the French 7s team and to withdraw from the French XV during the Six Nations Tournament, Florian Grill, the president of the French Rugby Federation , declared to La Dépêche du Midi: “I find that when we have an athlete like Antoine Dupont who says “I want to do the Olympic Games”, we don’t give him orders. We listen and find the best possible solutions.”

The French leader suggests that the scrum half from Stade Toulousain and the XV of France “will do a lot of good for rugby, particularly thanks to the media coverage we have around the Olympic Games”. For Florian Grill, Antoine Dupont “beyond being a sportsman, he is a beautiful person”. “I want to believe that rugby contributed to making him the person he is today,” he emphasizes.

After their third place at the tournament in Vancouver (Canada) last week, the Tricolores, reinforced by Antoine Dupont, will try against Ireland to reach the final of the world circuit stage in Los Angeles, this Sunday evening (11:08 p.m. , to follow live on our site).
