Zambia has picked up its first medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Boas Munyonga has won bronze in the 81kg mens category after beating Louis Krieber-Gagnon of Canada.

His compatriot William Kalunga is also in the race for a medal after beating Neuso Sigauque of Mozambique in the 60kg last 16 on Thursday.

However, female judoka Abigail Chindele lost in the 48Kg judo after reaching the quarterfinals.

Overall, Munyonga’s medal win is a big relief for team Zambia after poor showing in the men’s table tennis singles, squash and in the swimming pool.

And in boxing, Chris Katanga lost 3-0 in the men’s flyweight after losing 3-0 to Ruairi Dalton of Northern Ireland, leaving four boxer’s still in contention.

Meanwhile, Kelvin Ndhlovu is in action in the mens singles squash against Campbell Grayson in the round of 16.

  1. Good show, keep waving that flag of ours. The green,black, red and orange should fly as high as th mighty eagle on the flag.


  2. I’m guessing Munyonga won the bronze in men’s 81kg judo?

    A shame after his hard work and good showing that LT can’t say what sport this is….. and leaves us only to guess from what is written about another athlete two paragraphs down! Who, what, when, where. It’s not that hard. I guess no medals for Zambia in journalism then?

    Anyway, Munyonga – congratulations and well done!
