Audrey Tcheuméo European champion

After defeating Anna-Maria Wagner by Ippon in the final of her category, the double Olympic medallist is on the top step of the podium at the 2024 European Championships. This is Audrey Tcheuméo's fifth individual European title, just a few months after winning the Champions League with the Paris Saint-Germain Judo women's team.

In her first bout, the native of Bondy (Seine-Saint-Denis) first beat Russia's Nadezhda Tatarchenko. She then beat Germany's Alina Boehm in the quarter-finals, Israel's Inbar Lanir in the semi-finals and finally another German, Anna-Maria Wagner, world no. 3, in the final.

In the men's event, Georgia's Lasha Bekauri took bronze today in the -90kg category. At the end of thethree days of European individual competition, the Rouge et Bleu and Blue team won four medals.

‘Well done to Audrey! She acted like a champion in this competition, with great determination and an irreproachable mental attitude. She's now a five-time European gold medallist, which is extraordinary. Few French judoka have managed to build up such an impressive record. I'm very proud of her performance.'
