Worlds – Track – Mathilde Gros, world speed champion!

Mathilde Gros became world champion in individual speed for the first time at home, in a boiling Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines velodrome! An evening that will forever be etched in the memory of the 23-year-old Frenchwoman, who burst into tears after her feat. Highly anticipated for several years, the tricolor sprinter certainly signed her real birth certificate this Friday, October 14, 2022, beating the double world champion in quick succession. Emma Hinze in half then his compatriot Lea Sophie Friedrich in the final, which she dominated as a boss 2 sets to 0.

A first in sprint since 1999 and Félicia Ballanger!

A champion’s career and an enormous performance which made the French public roar with pleasure, thrilled with this first title for the French team in these Worlds. After a difficult start, France is climbing the slope with now 3 medals on the clock and a first Marseillaise to come. Mathilde Gros is only the third Frenchwoman to win the sprint, after Isabelle Nicoloso in 1985 and especially Felicia Ballangertitled five times consecutively between 1995 and 1999.

As a reminder, the French remained on a “huge disappointment” during the Olympic Games in Tokyo. “I started from zero, she assured before these Worlds. “I remembered why I was cycling at the base compared to basketball. It’s the pleasure I take on the track. Since then, I’ve clearly been in a new dynamic and a new perspective. I’ve done some good results but I know that the World Cup is not my main objective. I want to be ready for Paris 2024”. A new state of mind which therefore translated into a world title and the feeling that the French champion had finally found herself on the track. Auspicious less than two years from Paris 2024 Olympicswhich will be held in the same velodrome of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines…
