February 11 - Marie Bochet will carry French hopes of winning gold in Sochi after claiming five world titles in 2013 ©Getty Images Multi world champion Marie Bochet and Vancouver 2010 silver medallists Vincent Gauthier-Manuel and Solene Jambaque are the big names on the French squad named for the Sochi 2014 Winter Paralympic Games.

Bochet swept the board at last year's International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Alpine Skiing World Championships in La Molina, Spain, winning gold in each of the five disciplines she entered in the standing class.

The 20-year-old, who will be making her second Paralympic Games appearance next month, also won the women's standing speed events at the 2013 World Cup finals in Sochi, on the same course that will be used at the Paralympics.

Gauthier-Manuel also impressed at the Sochi test event, claiming victory in the men's standing competition and the 27-year-old will be hoping to repeat that performance as he looks to build on his two silver medals and one bronze from Vancouver.

Jambaque also claimed two silver medals and along with a men's Super-G visually impaired gold for Nicolas Berejny, France finished in tenth place overall on the Vancouver 2010 medal table.

With Berejny not travelling to Sochi, Bochet, Gauthier-Manuel and Jambaque will be joined by fellow alpine skiers Cedric Amafroi, Patrice Baratterro, Frederic Francois, Jean-Yves Lemeur, Cyril More, Romain Riboud and former world champion Yohann Taberlet.

Benjamin Daviet and Roman Rosique, along with Thomas Clarion and guide Julien Bourla, make up the Nordic skiing team for Sochi, while a female snowboard athlete will be announced by the February 21 deadline, according to the National Paralympic Committee of France.
