Delphine Atangana could only finish 7th in heat seven of the women’s 100m. She made it in 11.82 sec in the heat that was won by an athlete from Ivory Coast, Ahoure Murielle who did the distance in 10.99sec. The entire nation was completely disappointed on Saturday as another Cameroonian, Adam Idrissa failed to reach the finish line in heat 4 of the men’s first round 100m event. In weightlifting, Nzesso Ngake Madias Dodo failed to grab a medal in the women’s 75kg category. In swimming, Guedia Mouafo Antoinette was eliminated in the women’s 50m freestyle. Essomba Thomas was also knocked out of the competition after falling to Paddy Barnes of Ireland in boxing. Totally, the number of Cameroonian athletes eliminated from the competition is 31 out of the 33 who constituted the Olympic team. Just two athletes are left in London with no medal yet.
