Women's national team coach Véronique Legras-Snoeck expressed her satisfaction and high hopes for the women's team. She also announced that Marine Boyer and Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos will be competing all-around while Coline Devillard will be looking to medal on vault and Lorette Charpy on bars.

Read her original statement  below (Google translation):

"With the National Commission, we set a goal of two finals and a medal for girls. Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos will compete on four tackles with the objective of the final of the general contest. Marine Boyer will also present four tackles with the objective of entering the final of the Concours Général and winning a medal at the beam. Coline Devillard will be committed to the jump and we hope, why not, a medal. Lastly, Lorette Charpy fulfilled the criteria for the start of the Concours Général and approached the minima of the final score on the asymmetric bars. It will be engaged to the asymmetric bars, the beam and the ground. I explained this selection to all the gyms and their trainers with transparency. I am satisfied and expect a lot from this group. The French Open, a major event of this autumn, will also serve as a dress rehearsal for the world championships."

"Avec la Commission Nationale, nous avons fixé comme objectif deux finales et une médaille aux filles. Mélanie De Jesus Dos Santos concourra sur quatre agrès avec comme objectif la finale du Concours Général. Marine Boyer présentera, elle aussi, quatre agrès avec l'objectif d'entrer en finale du Concours Général et de décrocher une médaille à la poutre. Coline Devillard sera engagée au saut et nous espérons, pourquoi pas, une médaille. Enfin, Lorette Charpy a rempli les critères de note de départ du Concours Général et s'est approchée des minimas de note finale aux barres asymétriques. Elle sera engagée aux barres asymétriques, à la poutre et au sol. J'ai expliqué cette sélection à l'ensemble des gyms et leurs entraineurs avec transparence. Je suis satisfaite et j'attends beaucoup de ce groupe. Les Internationaux de France, événement majeur de cette rentrée, serviront aussi de répétition générale pour les championnats du monde."
