Olympics: Italy's Mangiacapre takes boxing bronze


(ANSA) - London, August 10 - Italy's Vincenzo Mangiacapre
took bronze in the super lightweight boxing at the London 2012
Olympics on Friday after losing his semi final 15-8 to Cuba's
Roniel Sotolongo.
"I gave it everything I had but today I was tired, I still
hadn't recovered from the previous match," said the boxer from
Marcianise in the southern Campania region.
"It's a pity, I am sad about it, because I feel I am the
best (in the category)... However I hope I have been an example
of determination for the young people of Marcianise," he added.
Meanwhile Italian heavyweight boxer Clemente Russo is in the
running for a gold medal after making it through to the final of
the 91kg category by beating Azerbaijan's Teymur Mammadov 15-13
in the semifinals. He will take silver if he loses in the final.
