French darling Clarisse Agbegnenou wants to show five fingers
8 Feb 2019 20:25
French World champion Clarisse Agbegnenou has won her home Grand Slam on four occasions and will be the darling of the AccorHotels Arena this weekend.
Olympic silver medallist Agbegnenou is unbeaten since 2017 with a run of 23 consecutive contest wins in individual competition.
The French superstar’s arch-rival, Tina Trstenjak (SLO), Olympic champion and two-time Paris winner, is never one to back down from a challenge and will be keen to take on Agbegnenou in her homeland.
World Judo Masters silver medallist Nabekura Nami (JPN) and Osaka Grand Slam bronze medallist Nouchi Aimi (JPN) will also be in the mix in the U63kg category.
