According to the report in the Herald, Pedro was on a roll in his attempt for the Bronze in the "reparge" rounds. He was beating his opponents with ippons with increasing speed, until that last round...
Hey, He won a bronze in the past Olympics and the gold in the world championship. Everyone has an off day. Unfortunately, his lapse came in the games. Still, he's proven his heart, spirit and skill. A bow to him.
