Darcina

Day 1 of the Glasgow CG Judo competition saw Chanel Kavanagh (TAU WB) and Darcina Manuel (GIS EC) in action. Both athletes lost their first round matches, but fortunately were seeded so were in the quarter finals which allowed them repechages.

Chanel (-48) lost round 1 against Barbados, and then to the Cameroon player.

Darcina (-57) lost by yuko to the eventual silver medalist from Scotland, then defeated Mauritius before beating World Cadet champion Jessica Klimkait (CAN) by shimewza to claim the first individual medal by a Kiwi at the Games. Her comment upon stepping off the mat was "I think that was OK?"

Certainly was Darcina!!!
