8 Oct 2014 09:30
Charline van Snick, the London 2012 bronze Olympic medallist, is back on the mat after a long break since the 2013 World Championships in Rio de Janeiro. A tough time for her we really cannot imagine, and we wish that this situation never happens to anyone.
Let's be honest, in the begining nobody didn't believe in Charline's innocence. To find out who was the most supportive during Charline's suspension, we give you a hint, current World Champion, but the rest you will need to see in the interview with Charline.
She also spoke about her bad moments with Damiano Martinuzzi, how is to be back on the mat after long break, where she trained.
Sit tight for the interview with 2012 Olympic medallist Charline van Snick.
