Rio 2016: Scandal in wrestling competition

A scandal occurred during the freestyle wrestling competitions on Sunday, the last day of the 2016 Summer Olympics that wrapped in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, according to The Daily Mail newspaper of Great Britain.

Ganzorigiin Mandakhnaran (Mongolia) and Ikhtiyor Navruzov (Uzbekistan) faced each other for the bronze medal in the men’s 65 kg division.

The Uzbek wrestler achieved victory, whereupon, however, the Mongolian team coaches went on the wrestling mat and stripped down to their underwear to protest the judge’s decision.

Subsequently, they handed their clothes to the judges.
