Cuban judo athlete Yanet Bermoy had to settle for the silver medal in the 52-kg class after losing to North Korea`s Kum Ae An Sunday at the London Olympics. Bermoy, who won a silver medal in the 48-kg class at the 2008 Games in Beijing, had beaten Belgium`s Ilse Heylen in the semifinals.
The Cuban, however, was unable to handle the North Korean, who took the gold. Bermoy, who had moved up to the higher weight division two years ago, started the day by eliminating Mongolia`s Bundmaa Munkhbaatar. Bermoy now has two Olympic silver medals, a world championship and a Pan American Games gold medal under her belt.
