Dugasse falls short of bronze medal


Praslinois judoka Dominique Dugasse yesterday missed out on a bronze medal after losing his bronze-medal contest in the men +100 kg against Liam Park of Australia.

In the elimination round of 16, Dugasse defeated Jamaican Steven Moore by ippon, before losing quarter-final against Kody Andrews of New Zealand.

After the repechage, Dugasse was drawn against Kenyan Kalvin Afude, where the Seychellois heavyweight won by ippon, qualifying for the bronze medal contest where he lost to Park.
