UAE’s Olympic medal hopes vanish after Ivan Remarenco suffers first round judo defeat

The UAE’s medal hopes at the Tokyo Olympics all but ended after judoka Ivan Remarenco suffered a first-round defeat to Canadian Shady Elnahas at the Nippon Budokan on Thursday.

Remarenco, 32, failed to land a blow as he went down by ippon in just over two minutes to the Egypt-born Elnahas, 23, in the 100-kilogram weight.

It marks a double disappointment for the UAE's two judokas following Victor Scvortov's first-round exit on Monday. The martial art is one of only two disciplines the country has medalled in at a Games following Sergio Toma's bronze at Rio in 2016.

While admitting that Shady was "no pushover", UAE Wrestling and Judo Federation general secretary Nasser Al Tamimi said focus now turns to the Paris Games in three years time.

“We tried and failed this time. We’ll now have to go back to the drawing boards and start preparing for Paris 2024,” Al Tamimi told The National.

“We certainly can take a lot of positives from our programme. We won bronze at Rio and then Ivan and Victor qualified for the Olympics in Tokyo. It’s just that we couldn’t reach the medal rounds this time.”

Remarenco was appearing in an Olympics for the third time. He represented Moldova at London 2012 before competing under the UAE flag at Rio and Tokyo.

Scvortov has represented the UAE at the Rio and Tokyo Olympics and won his adopted country an Asian Games bronze at Jakarta 2018.

“Our investment on these three judokas haven’t been in vain,” Al Tamimi, who is also a member of the International Judo Federation, said.

“They have brought us a lot success both in the world circuit and the continental championships. The plan has always been to continue with our strategy of recruiting a few foreigners who can lay a benchmark for our local judokas.

“We have a good programme in place for the young Emirati judokas. We are hopeful we’ll eventually have Emirati judokas at the Olympics, perhaps 2024 or 2028.”

The last of the UAE's five-member squad is in action on Saturday when Hassan Al Noobi lines up in the heats of the 100 metres.

Top investing tips for UAE residents in 2021

Build an emergency fund: Make sure you have enough cash to cover six months of expenses as a buffer against unexpected problems before you begin investing, advises Steve Cronin, the founder of DeadSimpleSaving.com.

Think long-term: When you invest, you need to have a long-term mindset, so don’t worry about momentary ups and downs in the stock market.

Invest worldwide: Diversify your investments globally, ideally by way of a global stock index fund.

Is your money tied up: Avoid anything where you cannot get your money back in full within a month at any time without any penalty.

Skip past the promises: “If an investment product is offering more than 10 per cent return per year, it is either extremely risky or a scam,” Mr Cronin says.

Choose plans with low fees: Make sure that any funds you buy do not charge more than 1 per cent in fees, Mr Cronin says. “If you invest by yourself, you can easily stay below this figure.” Managed funds and commissionable investments often come with higher fees.

Be sceptical about recommendations: If someone suggests an investment to you, ask if they stand to gain, advises Mr Cronin. “If they are receiving commission, they are unlikely to recommend an investment that’s best for you.”

Get financially independent: Mr Cronin advises UAE residents to pursue financial independence. Start with a Google search and improve your knowledge via expat investing websites or Facebook groups such as SimplyFI.
