Republic of Moldova sambista Natalia Repesco has indicated that her women's -68kg sambo quarter-final defeat against Ivana Jandric was down to a lack of composure.
The 22-year-old fell to a 4-0 loss against Serbia's Jandric at the Heyder Aliyev Arena on Monday morning to spell the end of her Baku 2015 campaign.
Repesco claims that she "lost focus" due to the noise created around her by spectators, which she failed to truly deal with.
"It was not on a high level," the young athlete told reporters. "Maybe she was better prepared than I was. I was not doing my best and did not attack her.
"Maybe she will be able to carry me to the fifth place. My leg injury also played its role and I think I lost focus because of the crowd."
