RAVENSHEAD’S Chris Adcock suffered a third mixed doubles defeat with partner Imogen Bankier as they bowed out of the Olympic Games on a low note on Tuesday evening.

The 23-year-old knew they could not progress, having lost their opening two matches.

And against Chinese world no.1 pairing Nan Zhang and Yunlei Zhao, they lost 21-13, 21-14 to complete a miserable Olympics for the British pair.

Adcock said: “It’s tough to assess what went wrong at the moment. Hopefully we can have our day in the future, hopefully in Rio in 2016.”
