Rio 2016: Alaa Abouelkassem eliminated in individual foil
The Egyptian fencer lost by a score of 15-13 to Italian Daniele Garozzo in the round of 16 match-up.
Dealing with an ankle injury suffered just prior to the start of the Rio Olympics, the 25 year-old had comfortably advanced to the round of 16 by beating the Czech international Alexander Choupenitch with a score of 15-8.
Abouelkassem still has the team foil to look forward to, where Egypt will face the United States in a quarterfinal match-up. The match will take place on Friday, August 12th.
