Egyptian women’s team have lost to Italy in their second game of the competition’s preliminary round at the Rio Games.

After losing against Germany in Egypt’s first ever Olympic appearance in women’s beach volleyball, the Egyptian duo Nada Meawad, 18, and Doaa Elghobashy, 19, failed to win their second game against Italy, losing 2-0.

Italy, represented by Marta Menegatti and Laura Giombini, won the two sets 21-10 and 21-13 to secure a 2-0 win in 38 minutes.

The Egyptian duo’s next match will be on Thursday against Canada’s Jamie Broder and Kristina Valjas, who defeated Italy 2-1 in the opening match.
