The second Albany area judo participant took the stage in London, and before he could breath, the Olympic dream was over.

Just a few days after his judo teammate Nick Delpopolo lost in the 2012 Olympics, Kyle Vashkulat unfortunately shares the same fate. Vashkulat had big hopes, but in under two minutes, those hopes were done.

Vashkulat lost his first round match to Ramziddin Sayidov of Uzbekistan. He said that he wished his Olympic experience lasted a bit longer, and that he knows he has to go back and work and train a bit harder.
