Alain Schmitt, a Judo instructor, accused Margaux Pinot, Olympic champion of lying about domestic abuse. Yesterday’s press conference saw the two hold separate conferences to present their versions of events.

Schmitt appeared to have a dark eye and said that he couldn’t hit any woman. Pinot’s statement was also allegedly false.

He admitted that they were involved in an argument, but he said that he didn’t hit her face. The percussions were strong. We moved from one side to the other. The radiator, and the walls. Everything was hit. Franceinfo reports that he said “I’m not making any hits.”

But, Olympic gold medallist Pinot shared photos of her battered visage on Twitter following Schmitt’s acquittal. She held her own press conference and accused Schmitt, accusing her of making her appear like a “hysterical women” and provided her account of the night.

Margaux Pinot said to the media that Schmitt tried to make Margaux look like a “hysterical” woman.

‘He started telling me that my career was ruined, that he would find someone to f*** me in judo. When I got up from my bed I closed my eyes and plugged my ears. These words are familiar to me. The 27-year-old Judo Champion said that she felt devalued and had less self-confidence for several months.

Schmitt expressed regret that he was receiving death threats and charged French athletes with ruining his job prospects. “French athletes called Israel, particularly after my release,” he stated, in reference to the fact that Israel Judo Association cut all ties following this incident.

While he acknowledged that the prosecution appeal was successful after his Wednesday acquittal, he also expressed disapproval at the media lynching and social media trial.

“There was appeal [from the prosecution]This is justice. It is their right and it has been done. What I don’t respect is the media lynching done to it. It’s not a court. Instagram, Twitter.

Pinot told reporters that she was afraid that he would be freed in a press conference.

After an argument at Pinot’s house, Schmitt was taken into custody. She claimed that he beat her and had attacked his domestic violence.

On Wednesday, he appeared in court and was cleared by the judge. He stated that there wasn’t enough evidence.

Pinot then shared on Twitter a photo showing her battered and bruised face hours later. It generated lots of support from others, as well as fellow French athletes.

Agbégnénou tweeted: ‘I do not have the words to express everything that is going on in my head and my body as a woman in the face of what my teammate Margaux Pinot has gone through. Even more stunned by the court’s decision. How can the court allow these sanctions to become fatal?

French Judo members expressed support for Margaux Pinot, including Teddy Riner (three-time Olympic gold medalist), who posted: “We all are deeply touched by the recent suffering of Margaux Pinot and offer our complete support. How can victims be heard? The attackers should be tried and convicted.

Pinot tweets: “During Saturday night, I was attacked at home by my trainer and companion.

I was punched, insulted and had my head hit the ground multiple times. Finally, I was finally strangled.

Following Schmitt’s alleged outbursts, she claimed that she sought refuge with her neighbors. Schmitt then called police.

Continued she: “I have many injuries, including a broken nose. I also suffer from Temporary Interruptions of Work for 10 days.” He was released by justice today.
