Eke misses out on quarter-finals spot

Nigeria's Uche Eke missed the chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals in the gymnastics event at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on Saturday.

Competing in the men's all-round artistic gymnastics event, Eke placed 36th with a score of 74.765 which was not enough for a place in the last eight, the Nation reports.

The 24-year-old was Nigeria's sole representative gymnast at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.

Earlier on Saturday, Esther Toko could not make it to the quarter-finals in the women's single repechage 2 in the rowing event, after placing fourth with a time of 9:07.54.

Although Toko misses out on chances of a medal, she qualifies for the semi-final EF round which will determine her overall ranking in the event.

Also, in the women's singles in table tennis event, veteran Funke Oshonaike lost 4-1 to Juan Liu of USA in the preliminary stage.
