Ghana won its first medal in the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Scotland on Thursday
Razak Abugri beat Neuso Sigauque of Mozambique to win the bronze medal in the men’s 60kg at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Abugri was defeated by South Africa’s Daniel Le Grange in the quarter final but he got a chance to contest for a medal when he won against Brandon George of Wales in the repachage contest.
The repachage was to allow losers in the previous round to have a chance of qualifying.
The gold medal was won by England’s Ashley McKenzie after he defeated Navjot Chana of India in the final.
In the other weight classes, Ghana’s Alex Amoako lost his Round of 32 66kg preliminary round to Cyprus’ Andreas Krassas.
