UEG: What are your objectives in Rio?
Laurent Guelzec: In reality, they are threefold. First of all, the priority is qualifying to the team final. 12 teams start, of which 5 –China, Japan, USA, Russia and Great Britain- are clearly out of reach. This is obvious. It is up to us to up our game amidst the nations of the second table. After that, we’d like to be represented within the top 15 in the all-around, and, as icing on the cake, have 1 event finalist. It is ambitious but within our reach, given our potential.
