The U.S. pair of Jake Gibb and Tri Bourne were eliminated in the round of 16 of the men’s tournament after a 17-21, 21-15, 15-11 loss to Germany’s Julius Thole and Clemens Wickler on Monday.

Bourne was a last-minute swap after Gibb’s original partner — Taylor Crabb, who like Bourne hails from Hawaii — tested positive for COVID-19 when he arrived in Japan. The pair had just three practices before their first match, but they made it out of pool play with a 2-1 record.

The 45-year-old Gibb, a four-time Olympian, announced his retirement after Monday’s match.
