Wrestling Bronze Medal Match Ends In Controversy; Mongolian Coaches Strip In Protest

Today’s 65kg freestyle wrestling bronze medal match between Uzbekistan’s Ikhtiyor Navruzov and Mongolian Ganzorigiin Mandakhnaran ended in controversy as Ganzorigiin was assessed a penalty for celebrating his victory early, costing him the victory. A subsequent penalty point came after the Mongolian coaches began stripping on the mat in protest.

The angry broadcast analyst found the situation intolerable, stating that “this is now absolutely ridiculous.”
