The Frenchman speaks to Pontoon on his return to the elite after a slump that began with the frustration of finishing fourth in the London Olympics and which could have ended his career prematurely.
“I pulled off a perfect race, I had no complaints. But even so... I was fourth. And even now when I think about that day it hurts. I finished fourth and that will stay with me for the rest of my life: the first to finish without a medal,” David admits bitterly to Pontoon almost three years after the Olympic triathlon in London.
