Belize Makes Appearance in Judo Match in Rio

In Rio today, Belize’s own Renick James went up against Ovini Uera of Nauru; a tiny island nation northeast of Australia, in the men’s ninety kilograms Judo event.  With Judo’s fast paced action and penalties against non-combativity, the match was over fairly quickly.  James put up an admirable defence until a second near-takedown earned Uera enough points to win the match.  While disappointed at his performance of his first Olympic competition, James is looking forward. Here is what he said in an interview with ESPN:
