Background: Athletes and swimmers likely to carry the French challenge at the Munich Olympic Games are currently in final training at Vesges health resort of Vittel.
Several established athletics stars are missing from the final stages of training. Top sprinter Roger Bambuck, middle-distance runner Jean Wadoux and European 400 metres hurdles champion Jean Claude Mallet all have injury problems.
But final selection of the official teams has been held back until the athletics match against Poland on August 9 and 10.
Coverage from cameraman Francois Vincent includes Athletics Director Robert Bobin out on the track with potential Olympics competitors, and team trainer Lucien Zins with some of his top swimming prospects.
