Indian judoka Tombi Khumujam Devi's Beijing [Images] Olympics [Images] campaign lasted only two-and-a-half minutes. She was knocked out in the preliminary round of the women's 48kg event in Beijing on Saturday.

The Manipuri judoka was outmaneuvered by Ana Hormigo of Portugal at the USTB Gymnasium.

Divya Tewar, competing in 78kg category, now remains the only Indian judoka left in the competition.

Tombi earned a berth in the Beijing Games after winning a bronze medal in the Asian Championships, while Divya made the cut by finishing fifth.

Earlier in the day, there was disappointment for Indian shooters as Anjali Bhagwat and Avneet Kaur Sidhu failed to make the final failing to make the final in the women's 10m air rifle event.
