Mauritian boxer Bruno Julie gets the country's first Olympic medal in Beijing

For the first time in the history of sports of the island, a Mauritian will stand on the podium to receive a medal, albeit a bronze one at the Beijing Olympics. Bruno Julie, boxer in the -54 kg bantamweight category and Commonwealth champion who is taking part in the 2008 Beijing Olympics has qualified on Monday for the semi-finals after beating the Venezuelan Hector Manzanilla Rangel by points (13 - 9) at the workers' Sports stadium in the Chinese capital Beijing. "The Mauritian magician" as commentators of the BBC have called him had on Friday last eliminated the last Uzbek Hoorshid Tojibaev (16 - 4) and will box against the favourite of the bantamweight category, the Cuban Yankiel Leon Alarcon on Friday.

"Good job and big thank to you Bruno, may the force be with you for the rest (no matter what the result is), we know you'll give the best of yourself"
