Former Commonwealth bronze medallist Anderson “Tootsie” Emmanuel was defeated on points today.
Competing in the 20th edition of the Games in Glasgow, Scotland, Emmanuel was beaten by Ugandan Mike Sekabembe in the men’s 91kg class.
Judoka Kyle Maxwell also lost to Papua New Guinea’s Ashaan Nelson in the 73kg division. The contest, which lasted 25 seconds, saw Nelson being awarded an Ippon or full point (which automatically ends matches).
Sri Lanka defeated the badminton team 3-0 in mixed play; the women’s table tennis team lost 0-3 to Nigeria and the men also suffered a similar fate against England.
In shooting, Marlon Best was 19th overall during the qualification round of the men’s 10M air rifle with 562.3 points. India’s Abhinav Bindra went on to take the gold with 205.3 points. (SAT)
