Nancy ousted
The dream is over for Moose Jaw's Nancy Jewitt-Filteau.

Jewitt-Filteau, who came out of retirement this year to pursue her Olympic dream, failed to make the medal round in the women's heavyweight judo event.

Jewitt-Filteau won one match but lost two Saturday and was eliminated from the competition.

"I wished I could have done a little better." the 34-year-old Agriculture Canada inspector told the Canadian Press.

Jewitt-Filteau, a member of the Moose Jaw Judo Club since moving to Moose Jaw a year ago, is expected back in Moose Jaw July 30. Her husband Ron is also in Atlanta taking in the action and will be back in Moose Jaw later this week.
