Aaron Cook has claimed that failing to advance through in the men's -80kg taekwondo event at Baku 2015 has left him feeling as though he has let his country down.
World number one Cook was among the favourites to win gold in his particular weight category, but he was stunned by Portugal's Julio Ferreira earlier today to spell an early exit from the competition.
"I feel like I've let [Moldova] down today and that's why I'm very disappointed with myself," he told reporters. "I came here for the gold medal and I always come to every competition expecting the gold medal."body check tags ::
