Wembanyama: "My goal is to beat Team USA"

The player aspires to win a gold medal at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

The French basketball player, Victor Wembanyama, is emerging as the number 1 selection in the NBA Draft for next season with the San Antonio Spurs. 

The career of this 19-year-old, 2,19-meter figure has become one of the most important topics in organized basketball. However, the center has a set goal that keeps him away from the NBA. 

During recent statements, the promise assured that her biggest dream is to win the gold medal at the 2024 Paris Olympics and defeat the United States team in the process.

“There couldn't be a more perfect occasion to win my first title with the French team. My goal is to beat the United States team in the final," Wembanyama said, according to Marca. 

Wembanyama's desire is due to the fact that Team USA has won gold in the last four editions of the Olympic Games since 2008 and has a record of 29 wins and only one loss. 

Precisely the only defeat they suffered was against France at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, a match in which the Gauls triumphed 83-76. Despite that, they lost in the final to the Americans 82-87.
