clarisse agbegnenou


Judo World Champion

Clarisse Agbegnenou has always been a person with overflowing energy and joy of living, despite a difficult beginning of life as a premature baby. It was after a school try-out and a discussion with its director in order to channel her "overflowing energy" that she took her first steps in judo at the age of 10. Now vice-Olympic champion, she added her name last August in the history book of French judo by becoming the most successful woman in the world with her fourth title. Clarisse is a complete and committed athlete, godmother and ambassador for SOS Péma, she advocates for a greater mediatization of judo and its return in school grounds with the sponsorship of a Paris 2024 school in Paris’ 15th arrondissement. She is also very committed to equal treatment between men and women as a godmother of the operation "Women's Sport always" alongside with the Minister of Sport, the Secretary of State for Gender Equality and the fight against discrimination and the CSA. Staff sergeant in the gendarmerie and holder of a DESJEPS, the world n°1 led all the teams of the French delegation as flag-bearer for the last European games in Minsk. She concretized this honour and pride by winning a 4th European crown. Only one medal remains on her hunting board: the Olympic gold.

Thierry Boutsen Story

Born in 1957 in Brussels, Thierry Boutsen is a Belgian former Formula One driver.
His passion for motorsport sparked when he was three years old. Patient but determined and ambitious, he started his career in 1976 at the André Pilette Racing School in Zolder.

As a deal with his father, Thierry would need to get his mechanical-engineering degree before fully focusing on a motorsport career. After graduating, he worked his way up and entered the Benelux Formula Ford Championship. In 1978, he won 15 of the 18 races. From there, he kept going to race in Formula 3, then Formula 2, where he became European vice-Champion. In 1983, he moved up to Formula One with the team Arrows at his home race, the Belgian Grand Prix. Thierry remained with this team during four years, finished second at the 1985 San Marino Grand Prix.
In 1987, he moved on to Benetton and finished fourth in the 1988 F1 World Championship.

1989 marked a watershed. Thierry switched to the Williams team and won his first Grand Prix in Canada. Sustaining this momentum, he took two other wins at the Australian and Hungarian Grand Prix. After the 1990 season, Thierry moved on to Ligier, then to Jordan. As a renowned Formula One champion, he participated in 164 Formula One races in total.

In 1993, he chose to retire from Formula One and continued racing sportscars as Porsche Factory Driver for six years.
The line must be drawn somewhere, Thierry decided to quit racing in 1999 for new adventures.

« I learned in racing all about precision, preparation, timing, attention to detail, punctuality, motivation, concentration, sacrifices, no right to error, teamwork, in fact racing is a very good school of life. »

At the end of his driving career, he focused all his efforts on his second passion: aviation. Thierry founded Boutsen Aviation in 1997 with his wife Daniela, a business dedicated to the sale of Business Jets and Helicopters. To date, the company has sold an outstanding 381 aircraft, making it one of the leading European companies in the business aviation industry.

In 2018, Thierry’s thirst for new challenges led to the development of Boutsen Classic Cars.
With a unique international network provided by the former driver’s history in motor racing and its Business Jets company, the firm specializes in the sourcing, acquisition and sale of historic road and race cars from the 50’s to the 90’s for discriminating collectors.
