Valentine Derrey talks about The Olympics
 Print

The 2012 Summer Olympics are in full swing and all over the world people are watching their favourite athletes compete for gold, including Valentine Derrey from France.

What are your favourite Olympic sports? I love watching tennis and track and field, rugby, and now golf.

Who are your favourite Olympic athletes and why? Olympic sports women: Gymnastics because you see some unbelievable young girls who are dominating their sports and they only are 14years old.  Olympics sport men: I think the tennis. Because I love watching Federer win!

What sport or event do you like to watch during the Olympics? Tennis.

Have you got any plans to go to watch any events during London 2012? Unfortunately, I will be playing tournaments in the USA.

Which country do you think will win more medals during London 2012? What about Great Britain? Probably China or the USA.

Which Olympic Games sport do you like the most and why? Rugby, because I like when the French team dominates.

Do you practice currently or have you ever practiced any other Olympic sport? I played tennis when I was younger and I like to do sprints too. I like playing table tennis.

What is your favourite moment from an Olympics Games? I really liked seeing Usain Bolt winning the 100m and 200m in 2008. It looked so easy for him.

Have you met any other Olympic medallists apart from Vera Shimanskaya? No.

If you were not a golf professional, what other Olympic Sport would you have liked to practice? Tennis. I love tennis, I wish I could play more often.

If you had not dedicated your career to golf. In which other Olympic Sport you think you would have succeeded? Not sure.

Do you know the procedure to get selected to enter Rio 2016, where golf will be for the first time a new Sport? Explain it. To be eligible, you have to be in the top 15 world ranked players. And then there is a maximum of 2 players by country.

How do you think golf will change from 2016 after being a new Olympic Sport? Hopefully, there will be more people wanting to play golf. Golf will be seen as a real sport and not a hobby anymore.
