Évita Muzic struggles to accept her non-selection for Paris: "I thought I had proven the relevance of my selection"

For Évita Muzic Olympic Games will have bitter taste. The 25-year-old has made the race in Paris one of the main objectives of her already successful season where she won the queen stage of Vuelta Femenina, among others.

Yet it was not enough to make the cut for the French national team, who have instead selected Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Victoire Berteau and Juliette Labous.

"The road cycling event at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games was a dream. I will not participate. The coach decided otherwise and I can only accept this decision with bitterness and regret," Muzic wrote in a heartfelt post on her social media.

"Bitterness because I made this race a major objective of my season. These Games in Paris are the event of the century, the unique opportunity to fly the blue-white-red flag at home, to compete for a medal and to inspire future generations of our sport," she wrote.

"Regrets also because, with my performances since the start of the season, my victory in the Vuelta and the results obtained on explosive circuits which correspond to the Olympic course, I thought I had proven the relevance of my selection. That's what I believed."
