Team Bath judo player Emmanuel Nartey secured a seventh place finish for Ghana at the Budapest World Cup at the weekend.
Nartey won his opening three preliminary round contests in the under-73kg competition before losing to Japan’s Yasuhiro Awano, who went on to win bronze. That put Nartey through to the repechage, where he lost to Petro Kuzmin.
There was disappointment for Andy Burns, a University of Bath Coach Education and Sports Development graduate, who lost his opening round under-90kg class contest to Sweden’s Joakim Dvarby.
