Judo: Agbégnénou will participate in the World Championships in Abu Dhabi, two months before the Olympics

Reigning Olympic champion Clarisse Agbégnénou (-63 kg) will participate in the World Judo Championships in Abu Dhabi (May 19-24), two months before the Paris Olympic Games, the French Judo Federation announced on Tuesday.

Six-time world champion, Agbégnénou, 31, is among the first French judokas selected for these Worlds organized in the emirate.

Just before the Tokyo Games in 2021, the Frenchwoman had already chosen to participate in the Worlds. A winning choice since she won world gold in Budapest before winning Olympic gold in Japan.

At the beginning of February, Agbégnénou won the Paris tournament, setting the record straight after the European Championships in November in Montpellier, which ended without a medal.

Victorious in Paris, then recently at the Baku Grand Slam and selected for the Olympics like Agbégnénou, the 2022 world champion Romane Dicko (78 kg) chose to skip these Abu Dhabi Worlds, as well as the European Championships in Zagreb at the end of April.
