A great badminton show
The French team (men and women) will aim for medals at home. In 2016, the men's team qualified for the final for the first time. They were defeated by Denmark and came back home with the silver medal. Two years after, they reached the semi-final and won bronze.
The women's team is still waiting for its first international medal. No doubt that they will try everything to achieve this goal at home.
Facing the French teams, Denmark, England, Germany and Russia will be among the favorites for the titles.
