Hard not to feel a sense of injustice for South Korean fencer Shim A Lam.
As the report above indicates, no one’s clarified what the ‘violation’ was for adding an extra second, and more importantly, the technical glitch of the clock freezing would seem to clearly sway things in Shim’s favour.
“Shin’s chance at a gold medal are well in the past, and it is all because a cockamamie ruling that was not overturned for reasons unbeknownst to the general public.”
Where’s Ahn Jung Hwan when you need him? :p
