16-women squad named for Les Bleues

France have named their 16-women squad for the upcoming Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Ankara, Turkey.

The squad will gather in Bourges for a two stage training camp. This first training session will not include the possible candidates from Bourges, Montpellier, Nantes or Mondeville due to their LFB playoff commitments.

Training camp begins on May 8th and will run until the 18th with the second stage beginning on 24th, with many French veterans certain to be included in that second part.

France will be gunning for one of the five available slots to qualify for the London Olympics. They will be facing Canada and Mali in Group D of the Qualifying Tournament from 25th June-July 1st.
