Clarisse Agbegnenou planned her year well. In the last week she took over the IJF World Ranking given her bronze medal at the IJF Masters. Leader Tina Trstenjak was absent and gave away her leading position. Agbegnenou became World Champion in 2017 and the leading position was probably a matter of time. For the first time since July 2015 Trstenjak wasn’t anymore on the top of the ranking.

Agbegnenou regained her world title of 2014. Since 2913 she was in the World Championships final four times. This time it was silver like at the Olympic Games. Trstenjak wasn’t good enough and her silver was actually pretty good given the pain she had. Agbegnenou started with silver in Paris but convincingly won the Grand Prix in Düsseldorf in February. IN Warsaw at the European Championships she was unlucky and got injured but recovered well  and tested herself successfully at the European Open in Bucharest in June. At the World’s in Budapest she was strong, convincing and determined to win the title. She simply claimed it, no doubt and defeated her nemesis Trstenjak.

Agbegnenou, Trstenjak and Gerbi dominated the rankings during the previous Olympic cycle. Emane, Zolnir and Ueno were temporary leaders from the previous era. In 2018 the Japanese will becoming stronger with Miku Tashiro and Nami Nabekura.
