France 2010 FIBA World Championship training roster

 Pierre Vincent © womensbasketball-in-france.comPierre Vincent has named his FIBA World Championship training roster. The roster includes nine players from the 2009 EuroBasket Women winning squad.

Vincent explained that he wanted to bring back all 12 players from last year. But it was not possible because Cathy Melain had retired after the victory with France last year.

The two other players missing are Emmanuelle Hermouet who retired from international basketball and Pauline Krawczyk.

Krawczyk was injured during the LFB challenge round final and is scheduled to have an operation this week.

The national coach has also decided to use the preparation period which starts on 5th August in Alpe d’Huez as preparation for EuroBasket Women 2011. This first training camp will give him an opportunity to bring new players into his group.

He has called up seven players born after 31 December 1988 because France are looking ahead to the 2012 Olympic games.
