Faye Njie’s ambition to further his exploit in international judo suffered a set back yesterday when he was eliminated in the first round of the 73kg category at the Olympics games. Faye won the silver in this category in Africa a few months ago.

However in his second Olympic appearance yesterday, Faye lost his opening fight against Makhmadbekov from Tajikistan after 3 minutes 53 seconds.

The GNOC yesterday expressed gratitude to Faye for his hard work and accomplishments for the country.
