Yannick Agnel case: the disturbing innuendo about the father of the alleged victim

A few hours after the first hearing of the former swimmer Yannick Agnel, who confessed to having had sex with a 13-year-old teenager who turns out to be the daughter of his trainer Lionel Horter in 2016, the columnists of Touche not to my post returned to the father of the alleged victim.

A story whose outcome is far from being recorded. After the indictment and the placement under judicial supervision this Saturday, December 11 of the former French swimmer Yannick Agnel, charged with rape and sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl in 2016, the chroniclers of Do not touch My TV debated this case on the plateau. As a reminder, then 24 years old, the Olympic medalist had non-consensual sex with the daughter of his coach at the time, Lionel Horter, when he was playing at the Mulhouse swimming club.

The facts would have unfolded “throughout 2016, in Mulhouse, but also abroad, in Thailand and Rio de Janeiro”, according to the prosecutor of the Republic of Haut-Rhin, Edwige Roux-Morizot. The latter also declared that Yannick Agnel “does not have the feeling that there has been coercion”. The facts are clear. But, to better understand what could really have happened, the columnists of Cyril Hanouna’s show investigated to give more information on the plateau, this Monday, December 13.

Géraldine Maillet: “Pandora’s box has just opened”

While Yannick Agnel was released on probation, Geraldine Maillet wanted to give some information on the family of the alleged victim of the former swimmer: “They are a very famous swimming clan. Lionel Horter is a renowned coach who coached Roxana Maracineanu and with whom he had a relationship when she was a minor. You should know that in the world of swimming, one in seven children is the victim of sexual abuse before reaching the age of majority. It’s Pandora’s box that just opened“.

Then it was Gilles Verdez’s turn to give his information on Yannick Agnel: “He has a very special personality. He is very lonely in the swimming world. On Saturday there was a big competition and we can not say that this story sparked a huge surprise. This relationship, some knew it. They thought it was agreed to, knew about it. It may still change but for the moment there is not enough support for Yannick Agnel, who has a personality that became very special after the death of Camille Muffat, whom he considered to be his big sister, in the helicopter crash in 2015. From that moment his personality wavered and he locked himself in immense solitude “. New twists are expected very soon.
