Richard Jouve and Lucas Chanavat (FRA) celebrate with the team after the Tour de Ski sprint in Lenzerheide.

France’s team to the 2022 Olympics in Beijing consists of 13 cross-country skiers: five women and eight men. The French biathlon team to the Beijing Winter Games consists of 12 athletes: six women and six men. 

The Olympics in Beijing start on February 4 and conclude on February 20. Check out the complete schedule for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, all sports. 

Cross-country
On the women’s side, France is sending a young and fresh team to Beijing: Only Delphine Claudel, 25, has prior Olympic experience.  

On the men’s side, the French team is deeper and more experienced. Seven of the eight men have been to the Olympics before. 35-year-old Maurice Manificat is headed to his fourth Olympics, while 23-year-old Hugo Lapalus is the only Olympic rookie on the team. 

However, for the first time since 2006, Jean-Marc Gaillard is not a part of the French Olympic team. After a slow start to the World Cup season, the 41-year-old was not picked for Tour de Ski. Gaillard had hoped to qualify at the World Cup in Les Rousses, France, last weekend, or at the World Cup in Planca on January 21 to 23. But the Omicron wave of the corona virus changed everything. Both World Cups were cancelled.
