Arik Ze'evi's Olympic dream ended in just 43 seconds on Thursday after he was stunned by Germany's Dimitri Peters in the first round of the judo under-100kg competition.

The 35-year-old Ze'evi, who won his fourth European title earlier this year, entered the 2012 Games with high hopes but saw them shattered within seconds of the start of his fourth and final Olympics.

"In my worst nightmares I hadn't envisioned such a scenario," a shocked Ze'evi said. "I never thought my Olympic career would end like this."
