France achieved a narrow win over Russia and took their first Olympic gold in volleyball

France calmed the comeback of the Russian Olympic Committee (COR) team and was proclaimed for the first time in its history Olympic volleyball champion after a tight 3-2.

The team led by Laurent Tillie won with 25-23 (30 m.), 25-17 (27 m.), 21-25 (30 m.), 21-25 (31 m.) And 15-12 (18 m. .) after two hours and 15 minutes of the game.

The final became a festival for Earvin Ngapeth, author of no less than 26 points. Jean Patry, key in the semifinal, also shone with fifteen, while Maxim Mikhaylov (20) and Egor Kliuka (20) were the references of the Russians.

France takes over from Brazil, champion in Rio 2016, after beating Italy in the final.

Argentina won the Tokyo 2020 bronze by beating the Brazilian team also 3-2.
