He will be one of the stars of the Games this summer in Paris. Like her colleague Teddy Riner, Clarisse Agbegnenou will chase gold in front of her home crowd, hoping to defend her Olympic title won in Tokyo three years ago. On the occasion of the last press conference of the French judo team before the competition, the champion gave an interview to Eurosport on Monday. Exclusively, she revealed to us that these Olympic Games could ultimately not be her last.

I tell myself that I can’t stop like this. Now is when I am at my peak. After the Games, I’m still going to take a little break, then I would like to have more children (his daughter Athena has just celebrated her second birthday, editor’s note). Coming back after pregnancy, I’ve already done it once, I know the formula! So for Los Angeles, I will have enough time, it’s perfect“, she estimated.

Six-time world champion, still a bronze medalist at the Worlds in May, Agbegnenou went to collect her 6th world title just 11 months after giving birth to her daughter. The Paris Games could have been her last major competition, but at 31 years old (she will be 32 on October 25), the person concerned does not want to stop there. If she is at the Californian meeting, she will have 35 years on her clock, which is exactly the age of… Teddy Riner in search of a 3rd Olympic gold medal in Paris.
