YesWe could have guessed, but Victor Wembanyama has only now confirmed that he will compete in next year’s Olympics. France’s disastrous defeat at the recent World Cup and Paris hosting the Olympics are two compelling reasons. The French prodigy will be one of the biggest attractions and his goal is clear: “Nothing but gold.”
The 19-year-old, 2.26-meter-tall prodigy is shown in the documentary “Un1que” on Canal Plus, showing his final season in the French league with Métropolitan 92. In the film he promises that “success at the Olympics will be a great piece of history”…of course I will be there. “
Wembunyama, the No. 1 pick in the last draft, was billed as commemorating an era in the NBA as LeBron James’ first confirmed threat for the Dream Team. After Team USA suffered a setback at the World Cup, missing out on the podium and finishing fourth, they wanted to put together a great team: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum…they will have “Wemby” in front of them.
France Tower also spoke about his team’s disappointment at the World Cup, failing to even make it past the first stage. “I saw it and the result was very disappointing. I’m not worried, though. I have no judgment, it’s not in the team but in the hands of the top players. I don’t feel like it changes the chance to do something in Paris next year Great things,” he said with motivation.
