The best that the champion from London and Rio can hope for now is a bronze through the repechage.
Riner, a 10-time world champion, had been hoping to emulate Japanese judo legend Tadahiro Nomura, who won golds at three consecutive Games.
Last year, the 32-year-old suffered a shock loss to Japan’s Kokoro Kageura to end his staggering 10-year, 154-match winning streak.
Rafael Silva of Brazil will be Riner's first opponent in the repechage.
