Clémence Calvin had already been temporarily suspended for the first time in early April, a decision broken by the State Council- the athlete was not previously received by the AFLD – which allowed her to run the Paris marathon. two weeks ago.
She had an impressive performance (2 h 23 min 41 sec) and broke the French record for her second distance race.
Risk of four years suspension
Clemency Calvin was received last Tuesday by the president of AFLD Dominique Laurent. The conditions were thus met for a new provisional suspension, which was notified to him last week, pending the examination of the file.
AFLD accuses Clémence Calvin of evading control March 27th in Marrakech. She accuses her husband and coach Samir Dahmani, also a French international athlete, of obstruction of control. They both risk a four-year suspension.
