It has come to an end for the Algerian athletes in sailing and rowing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, with the RS:X duo finishing in last place in the sailing races, while the rowers settled for fifth and two more boxers were eliminated at the end of the sixth day.
First up was the Algerian duo formed by Kamel Ait Daoud and Sid Ali Boudina who finished the Final C race in fifth place out of six, with a time of 6:41.62. The winners of the race were Portugal with a time of 6:24.44.
The RS:X sailing came to an end after a total of 12 races were spread out between four days. Algerians Hamza Bouras and Amina Berishi both finished last at the Tokyo Olympics, Bouras finished the Men’s in the 25th and last place. Meanwhile, Berishi ranked 27th and last in the Women’s.
Some more disappointment followed in the boxing as the Algerians continued to be eliminated one by one. Younes Nemouchi was unable to finish his fight after the referee had to call a stop at 2:24 of the first round, after a clash of heads which resulted in a cut on the Algerian’s brow handing the win to the Filipino Eumir Marcial.
Chouaib Bouloudinats was then easily defeated by the American Richard Torrez Jr in the Men’s Super-Heavy (over 91kg).
And before today’s events we witnessed the elimination of four Algerian boxers, Mohammed Houmri, Abdelhafid Benchabla, Ichrak Chaib and Roumaysa Boualam.
That now leaves two more boxers for Algeria at the Olympic Games. Imane Khelif who will challenge tomorrow the Tunisian, Mariem Homrani, in the last eight, while Mohamed Flissi will take on the Filipino Carlo Paalam on Saturday.
