Olympic Games: Day 2 review

    It was a day of disappointment for Israel as the 2012 Olympic Games ended somewhat prematurely for several members of the delegation.

    BADMINTON

    Misha Zilberman bowed out of the Badminton competition a second consecutive defeat in Group One, going down 21-9, 21-15 to Singapore’s Derek Wong.

    GYMNASTICS

    Valeria Maksyuta tumbled out following a hap-hazard performance in the beam and floor events. She averaged 13.3 in the vault, where she suffered a fall and never recovered. She is placed 31st in the Overall Individual rankings after the first preliminary round.

    JUDO

    Golan Pollack was beaten by Frenchman David Larose in the 66kg category in the Round of 64.

    SWIMMING

    Yakov Toumarkin finished sixth in his 100-metre backstroke, but his time of 54.91 seconds was not enough to earn him a place in the semi-finals.

    Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or was another casualty. He placed 21st overall in the 200m freestyle heats, with a time of 1:48.60 minutes.

    TENNIS

    Shahar Peer was unable to build on an early break as she succumbed to former Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova in the Ladies Singles competition at SW19.

    Peer is expected to be involved in the Mixed Doubles competition.

    IN OTHER NEWS
    Elsewhere, Russia, coached by Israeli David Blatt, overcame Great Britain 95-75 in the opening match in the Men's Basketball competition.

    Israel will be looking to win their first medals of the Games on Monday, with shooter Sergei Richter and judoka Soso Palalshwelly looking to impress.
