Ghana’s Judo medal hopeful, Emmanuel Nartey lost out (3:0)to two time World Championship silver medalist Dex Elmont from the Netherlands on Monday at ExCel Arena.

Judoka, Nartey rescinded his decision Sunday night to go into the fight after an earlier threat of withdrawal from the competition as a result of unpaid camping allowances.

The experienced Dutch opponent was fouled on more than two occasions by his Ghanaian opponent.

Dex Elmont’s father, Ricardo is a former judoka himself, who represented Suriname at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada. His older brother Guillaume is also competing on the highest level in judo.

Meanwhile in the boxing schedule, Ghana’s Duke Micah fights his opponent from Mauritius, Jaso Lavigilnate at 8:45pm (British Summer Time) and 7:45pm Ghana Time
