Outlook for Rio: Medals haven’t been easy to come by for Muki since he scaled the top of the podium at the European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan last summer. His only significant medal of 2016 came in the Grand Slam event in Paris in February, but he has experienced plenty of close calls this year and he is confident of making serious inroads in Rio as a seed.
