To compound matters, flyweight Simon Johannes didnt arrive in time for his first round bout with the result that he lost on a walkover.

Excitement for the London Olympic Games is building in Namibia as hundreds of people attended a promotional event at the Wernhil Park shopping centre on Saturday morning.
The event was held to introduce Namibia’s athletes to the local community and to create a platform for the athletes to mingle and interact with members of the public.
Besides that several partners of the Namibia National Olympic Committee like Coca Cola, Samsung, Nampost, Virgin Active and the British High Commission also participated in the event, with stalls and promotional items on display.
