how the Federation rebounded from the Demongeot affair

Shaken, sixteen years ago, by the revelations of Isabelle Demongeot, victim of rape of her trainer, the federation has since taken measures.

In 2005, Isabelle Demongeot was one of the first high-level sportswomen to have the courage to denounce sexual violence by filing a complaint against her former trainer Régis de Camaret. Adapted from the eponymous autobiographical book Stolen Service published in 2007 by the former French number 2, the fiction, broadcast this evening on TF1, shows in particular how Isabelle Demongeot has managed over the years to collect twenty-four other testimonies, including two not prescribed. “The film recreates with great force, the incredible crusade that Isabelle led to put her executioner and the executioner of her young daughters behind bars.», Confides the general manager of the FFT Amélie Oudéa-Castéra. During his trial in 2012, Camaret, then aged 70, was sentenced on appeal to ten years in prison for the rapes of two underage residents of his club in Saint-Tropez. Demongeot had delivered scabrous details about Camaret’s actions when she was only 14 years old.

“The Federation, enlightened by the Camaret affair, had become a civil party in the Geddes affair. “
