Mia Hermansson has admitted that she was left feeling sorry for Gemma Howell after beating her opponent at the last-16 stage of the women's -63kg judo event.
The Swedish judoka turned the match around with a waza-aria 11 seconds from time earlier today to progress through to the quarter-finals.
Speaking after her Baku exit, the 22-year-old told reporters: "I feel a bit bad for [Howell] because it's the third time we meet this year and last time, not long ago at all, I was down on penalties too.
"Just in the end she made a bad attack and I countered her, got a waza-ari and kept my lead in the end. I wonder how she feels now, but that's not my problem."body check tags ::
