Charline Van Snick Fight List

In her earlier days of Judo competition, Charline was the Belgian cadet age class champion in 2006 and Belgian junior champion in 2007 at 48kg. At age 17 she won bronze at the European Under 20 Championship. By the time 2009 rolled around, she became the European under 20 champion and also won fifth in the World Junior Championship. Due to her accomplishments, she was awarded the Sports Merit Trophy given by the French Community.

She won her first senior European Championship medal in 2010 as well as a bronze medal in Vienna. Then in 2012 she won a silver medal at the European Championships. In her first Olympic appearance at the 2012 Olympic Games in London she won a bronze medal. She had defeated Chung Jung-yeon in the qualifying round and then moved on to beat Eva Csernoviczki in the quarterfinals. She lost to Sarah Menezes in the semi-finals which put her in the bronze medal match where she defeated Paula Pareto.

Just after the Olympics in April 2013, Charline won the silver medal at the European Championships after losing again to Csernoviczki. She then won two consecutive gold medals at the European Championship level in 2015 and 2016.

In her 2016 Olympic run she lost in the second round. Following this loss she moved up to the 52kg weight division. More recently in 2021 she competed in the women's 52kg event in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Unfortunately, a big part of Charline’s notoriety comes from a controversial doping case she was a part of in 2013. Several months after winning a bronze medal at the 2013 World Championships in Rio de Janeiro, it was announced that Charline had tested positive for cocaine in Rio. She consistently maintained her innocence and then in October 2013 it was announced that a hair analysis commissioned by Katholieke Universiteit Leuven’s toxicology lab denied evidence of habitual cocaine use. The test provided levels that were 200 times less than the amount of a habitual user. Another test was conducted in which the results were also positive for cocaine.

Due to this retest, on January 3, 2014, Charline was banned by the IJF for 2 years. She appealed the ban and her appeal was upheld. It was determined the the most plausible explanation of the test results was due to sabotage by a third party. Based on these findings, her 2 year ban was lifted. The Court for Arbitration for Sports stated that they would acknowledge the existence of the anti-doping violation but Charline would not be held to blame, Due to these circumstances, her results during the Championships in Rio de Janeiro 2013 remain annulled in arrogance the article 9 of the World Anti-Doping Code.
