On July 24, the young Zaza lost her match to Chinese-Austrian athlete Liu Jia 4-0 during the preliminaries. Although Zaza had hoped for a better showing, the loss capped a whirlwind trip. The night before her match, she was a flag bearer for Syria at the opening ceremony. A late night, plus the lingering six-hour jet lag, meant that she barely slept — not great preparation against Liu, who is making her sixth Olympic appearance.
"I was hoping for a winning match and for better play, but it's a tough opponent so it's a good lesson for me, especially with the first Olympics," Zaza said through an interpreter. "I will work on it to get a better result next time, hopefully."
Still, with her long hair bouncing as she did around the table, Zaza showed ability that impressed her seasoned opponent.
