After eliminating his compatriot Julia Tolofua in the semi-finals, the native of Clamart only needed a little more than a minute to get rid of the Brazilian Beatriz Souza (24 years old) thanks to excellent work on the ground, before bursting into tears by achieving the feat she had just achieved. In 2024 in Paris, she will aim for her first individual Olympic gold medal, for which she seems more favorite than ever.
