Clarisse Agbegnenou holds her Olympic final
Clarisse Agbegnenou is back in the final of the Olympic Games. And as in Rio 2016, she will face Tina Trstenjak for the supreme title.
To have the right to take revenge on the Slovenian, the five-time world champion beat Catherine Beauchemin-Pinard in the semi-finals. After a first waza-ari on a backswing that was canceled by video refereeing, she scored a second on a leg kick.
