Romane Dicko will not be Olympic champion in judo.
The Frenchwoman was dominated in the semi-final of the tournament in the +78 kg category by the Cuban Idalys Ortiz, world number 1 who took the advantage with an impeccable waza-ari in the middle of the fight, followed by a penalty against the French.
One more disappointment in the French camp after the disillusionment Teddy Riner, released from the quarter-finals.
Like his compatriot, Dicko will be able to try to play for the bronze medal a little later in the day.
