Commonwealth Games: Abugri wins bronze in Judo for Ghana

Ghana won its first medal in the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Scotland on Thursday.

Razak Abugri beat Neuso Sigauque of Mozambique to win the bronze medal in the men’s 60kg at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.

South Africa’s Daniel Le Grange defeated Abugri in the quarter-final, but he got a chance to contest for a medal when he won against Brandon George of Wales in the repechage contest.

The repechage was to allow losers in the previous round to have a chance of qualifying.

England’s Ashley McKenzie won the gold medal after he defeated Navjot Chana of India in the final.

In the other weight classes, Ghana’s Alex Amoako lost his Round of 32 66kg preliminary round to Cyprus’ Andreas Krassas.
