After  previously stating that his participation in the Olympic Qualyfing Tournament is not certain, Tony Parker now cleared things… and made the French, and not only, basketball fans quite relieved.

“Yes, I’ll be there for the Olympic Qualyfing Tournament and I will be in the Olympic Games if we qualify.” I want to play for France”, said the player in L’Equipe. “We’ve had many discussions with Axelle (his wife) and we agreed. We had to make the decision for two. She knows how important it is for me. We evaluated all the situations and I’ve made my decision”.

“I said I’m still going, it’s a great challenge”. This is how the San Antonio Spurs point guard confirmed that he will join “Les Bleus” in the Qualification Games that will take place in Manila, Philippines, from 4 to 10 of July.
