Georgian delegations protest followed by referees disqualification
The protest of the Georgian delegation at the ongoing London Olympics was responded by disqualification of freestyle wrestling referees yesterday, although the final decision is still in force.
Georgia`s Vladimer Khinchegashvili won the Olympic men`s 55kg freestyle wrestling silver medal after being defeated by Russia`s Dzhamal Otarsultanov in the final at London`s Excel Arena on Friday.
Despite the Georgian wrestler`s successful fight, his Russian was awarded the gold medal winner title.
The Georgian delegation objected to the referees` impartial decision. The referees were disqualified, although the final results of the tournament have remained the same.
