Israeli judo competitor Gal Yekutiel was defeated in the match for a bronze medal in the 60kg weight class on the first day of the Beijing Olympics Saturday. He lost to Ruben Houkes of The Netherlands. The 26 year old, competing in his second Olympics, secured his place in China with a fifth place finish in the 60 kilogram competition at April's European Championships. The best achievement of his career came in the previous Europeans in 2007 when he clinched the bronze medal.
