However well or poorly the French men do in Barca, I cannot help but think that Agnel’s decision to come to the Heart of Darkness, i.e., the USA, and work with Bob Bowman, is going to have a negative drag on their psychological preparedness for these games! Sure, I could be wrong, but look what happened to the Aussies in London: a couple of things were off track and the entire Dolphin performance was off the rails. It could happen to the French here, too.

Bowman is the US mens head coach?

Wow.. isn’t this a conflict of interest? Not sure how well the french take this, now that Bowman knows EXACTLY where Agnel is at.
