Best Olympic Athletes from France

List of the greatest Olympic athletes from France, with photos when available. These are the best French Olympians of all time who have had the honor of representing their country at the prestigious Olympic games. French athletes from every era all have their place in the Olympic history books, but which French Olympian is the best of them all? You can decide who the greatest Olympic competitor from France is by how many medals they took back to their country, but that isn't the only factor that comes into play when considering who the best really is.

Examples include Joël Chenal and Boris Sanson.

This list answers the questions, "Who is the best French Olympian of all time?" and "Who are the greatest Olympians from France?"

America, Russia and Great Britain have the most Olympic medals out of every country that has been represented in the Olympics, but it doesn't mean that Olympic competitors from other nations don't deserve accolades as well. Vote for your favorite France Olympic athletes on this list, and downvote the ones that you don't think had a huge impact on France.
