Egyptian Judoka has came seventh in the Judo Olympic competitions after losing to German Karl-Richard Frey by Ippon.

Darwish has lost by Ippon against Karl-Richard Fry in the men’s Olympic 100 kg repechage game. The Egyptian had a chance of winning bronze if he had managed to win against the German.

The Egyptian managed to win by Ippon against Dominic Dugasse of Sychelles in the round of 32 and then winning again in the round of 16 against Cuba’s Jose Armenteros.

Then he lost by Ippon against eventual silver medalist Elmar Gazimov from Azerbaijan in the quarterfinals and then losing again by Ippon in the repechage game against Frey that could have seen him qualify to face Cyrille Maret for a bronze medal.

Egyptians had large hopes on Ramadan Darwish winning a medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics as he was one of KingFut’s Olympians to watch, but his quest for a medal ended in disappointment for Egyptians all.

      Funny coming from a guy who’s country is still at a huge 0 medals count so far when the country he is insulting at least already claimed two.

      Funny our football had to be at its weakest point in decades for the ”Black Stars” to beat us cuz we usually sweep the floor back and forth with your team be it at an ACN or else.
