BEIJING -- Taraje Williams-Murray, who lives in Wakefield and attends Boston University, handed Japan its first loss in an Olympic match since the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, but was unable to advance to the medal round in the men's 60 kg class in judo competition at the Beijing Science and Technology University Gymnasium this morning.

Williams-Murray upset reigning Asian champion Hiroaki Hiroaka of Japan, the No. 5-ranked player in the world, but then fell to Javier Antonio Guedez Sanchez of Venezuela.
