Teddy Bear. He called Gaël a "brindille" (a twig)! 193 cm, that's a nice "brindille" already.
There is more stuff about Gaël's Olympic experience in the Beijing thread, as usual, he seems to have a lot of fun, is mentioned in many articles.

yes Teddy bear because in one of his interviews, he said that when he was born, his brother came to the hospital with a teddy bear and then, his parents decided to call him Teddy, cute story, doesn't it?
And yeah, compared to him, Gael is a brindille. Gael seems soooooo happy to be there, it's refreshing, I hope he'll see his favourite NBA players as well.

Oh, thank you so much, where did you find pics of the parade? You're incredible, Ome!
That's Doucouré next to him, isnt't it? They're friends.

Re: >>>!GaŽl in pictures!<<<

It's from Getty, available via Yahoo You can try searching with a keyword like: France and I scan through all the pictures for the boys

At first I thought that was Teddy...

Teddy Bear didn't take part to the opening ceremony because his legs can't support his body weight so long. I'm not kidding, that's the real reason he gave.

Re: >>>!GaŽl in pictures!<<<

That made sense in a way

Oh Teddy boy

I shall look for more pictures of Gael on other photo agencies as well. He's quite a camera's favorite!
