These are revelations that are once again chilling. In the columns of Paris Match, on newsstands Thursday January 27, 2022, we learn a little more about the statements made by the complainant in the so-called Yannick Agnel case. Indeed, in June 2021, the young woman, now 19, filed a complaint against the former professional swimmer for rape and sexual assault on a minor. She explained that she had sex with him when she was only 13 and he was 24. Their rapprochement would have started in 2015 when Yannick Agnel would have put his hands in his hair. “The horror came later”, explain our colleagues before detailing what the complainant would have said.

She explained that there would have been touching, caresses and oral sex. Paris Match claims to have had this information from the investigators in the case which shook the world of swimming. For his part, the principal concerned admitted having had relations with her but assures that they were consented and denies any constraint. “He specifies that for him he did not have the feeling that there was constraint. The facts are indeed constitutive of rape and sexual assault because there is a significant age difference between the 13 years of the young victim and the 24 years of Yannick Agnel at the time of the facts”, had explained the prosecutor of the Republic of Mulhouse, Edwige Roux-Morizot, during the indictment of the athlete.

Yannick Agnel had promised to marry his complainant

Always in the columns of Paris Match, we also learn that Yannick Agnel would have promised to the daughter of his trainer to marry him when she would have been 18 years old.
