Jamaica ends Paralympic Games without a medal

Jamaica ended their campaign at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Japan without a medal after first time Paralympian Shauna-Kay Hines lost her quarter-final in the women's K44 58 kilogram taekwondo competition on Friday.

The 32 year old Hines lost 18-5 to Egyptian Salma Abohegazy. Hines' 5 points came in the first round but she failed to score in rounds two and three of the fight.  

Veteran Sylvia Grant and fellow track and field athlete Alberto Campbell along with judoka athlete Theodore Subba were the other participants for Jamaica at the Games.

This is the second straight Paralympic Games that Jamaica has failed to medal after also finishing without any silverware in Rio, Brazil, 4 years ago.
