Baku, June 21, AZERTAC
Italian Natalia Valeeva was eliminated from the women's individual Archery competition on Sunday morning, ending her quest to win a third gold medal from as many events at the Baku 2015 European Games.
The no.3 seed upset came at the hands of no.30 seed Yuliya Lobzhenidze of Georgia, who won 6-2 in the opening match of the day at Tofiq Bahramov Stadium.
"I was lacking decisiveness, I was a bit low in tone," Valeeva said.
"These technical mistakes have been recurrent in this competition. I was unstable."
The 45-year-old won the mixed team event with Mauro Nespoli and the women's team title with Guendalina Sartori and Elena Tonetta.
She said her success at Baku 2015 was unexpected.
