"Today I decided to retire because I know how hard and demanding is to be at the highest level, the highest level of self-denial and self-sacrifice. I don't feel capable of providing those daily efforts anymore. I had a dream of being Olympic Champion, at the end I was only at the podium of the Olympics but belive me, this Olympic medal and my whole career completely filled me with happines. I can not be happier today. This is the end of my judo, judo on the high level competition, I clearly say "the high level" because I'm judoka and I will never stop doing judo." - Ugo Legrand announced via his facebook account.
