112 International

Ukraine’s judoka Oleg Bloshenko lost his chance to earn bronze from Ukraine in the respective event on Thursday (weight category up to 100 kg). The award eventually went to Japanese Ryunosuke Haga. The Ukrainian apologized to the supporters, saying he had a bad luck at tatami that day. ‘It’s just a sport, and judo is quite an unpredictable one’, Bloshenko said.

Elina Svitolina, who created a true sensation in tennis by stunning Serena Williams, left the Olympic tournament on Thursday. Petra Kvetova left her no chance in two sets (2-6, 0-6).  

Ukraine’s team of rowers finished sixth in their event, having lost almost ten seconds of time to Germany, which eventually collected gold. The women’s team finished fourth – one step away from the bronze. Again.     

Ukraine’s women team of epee fencers made it to the semifinals, but lost to their counterparts from the Republic of Korea.
