Sunday May 28, Clarisse Agbégnénou was the guest of Audrey Crespo-Mara in seven to eight. The Olympic and world judo champion returned to her very difficult birth, explaining that the doctors had announced the worst to her parents before a miracle return.

If Teddy Riner dominates the tatamis in men and chains the first titles, he does not eclipse his female counterpart, Clarisse Agbegnenou.
