Memoryón Ayala (given birth to August 15, 1979 in San Juan) is a Puerto Rican judoka who competed in the men’s half-heavyweight category. He found two sterling silver medals in the 100-kg department at the Skillet American Championships (2001 and 2003), accomplished a fifth-place surface finish on the 2003 Skillet American Video games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and symbolized his country Puerto Rico on the 2004 Summer months Olympics. Ayala qualified for the Puerto Rican squad in the men’s half-heavyweight course (100 kg) on the 2004 Summer months Olympics in Athens, by granting a tripartite invitation in the International Judo Federation. Ayala received a bye in the initial round, before shedding to his following opposition Sami Belgroun of Algeria by an ippon and an inner-thigh toss (uchi mata) 3 minutes and five secs into his starting match.
