66kg Myroslav Dykun
‘v’ Lithuania:  Lost: 2-1; 2-3; 0-1 (link)
It was a very close match with Myroslav taking the lead over Edgaras Venckaitis of Lithuania in the first round.  The second round was no pushover by Venckaitis as Myroslav was winning 1-0 when he made an error which meant that the Lithuanian could take the advantage and score 3 points.  The third round was also close, with Venckaitis achieving the vital point.
