“I was so happy for my teammates to win a silver medal in Lithuania. France proved in this tournament that we are one of the best teams in the world.”
“The team showed that we have the talent to reach a medal in the next Olympics for sure.”
A member of the preliminary squad ahead of the Olympics, Turiaf will do his best to get a spot on the final roster for London.
“I’m going to give my all to be on the team that will compete in London,” he said.
This team will be great. Every team outside of the U.S should be looking to get the prized silver medal!
