The Tokyo Olympics tournament has started today with a surprising result. France emerged victorious over Team USA to claim its first victory in the Tokyo Olympics.

For the United States to lose to France despite their array of basketball talent was disappointing at best. Following the loss, a variety of athletes and fans shared their thoughts on United States’ performance.

Gregg Popovich’s team has two more chances to secure their qualification to the next round of the tournament having two remaining games with Iran and the Czech Republic.
