Bangura’s defeat at the hands of his Nigerian opponent continue a trend of Sierra Leone’s poor run at the ongoing Games as none of the country’s athletes have been able to get past their preliminary rounds since the games started a week ago.
The 22-year-old Bangura was unable to secure a single point against the hefty 37-yearold Nigerian who came away with eight points which turned out to be the winning score in period one of their fight.
In another development, cyclist, Mohamed Thorley is still missing from the Games village as he is yet to return since leaving the camp on Sunday July 27.
The Sierra Leone National Cycling Association president, Winston DC Crowther confirmed Thorley is not in the village adding that he will not confirm that he is missing or whether he will be coming back.
“He left his key behind and we have been calling him for the past few days and he tells us that he will return so we are still not going to confirm anything yet,” Crowther said.
However, Moses Sesay has been discharged from the hospital and is hoping to be fit in time to take part in the cycling time trials and road race.
