Stumble Upon Toolbar
Ara Abrahamian the Swedish wrestler in the Grecoroman category was upset at the decision by the Judges to award the match against him in a match against Italian wrestler,

Abrahamian later won the bronze medal in another decider for the Bronze medal but was not happy, according to him it looked like he was sure to win against the Italian Wrestler who eventually won the Gold at the event and cited political reasons why the judges decided against him, but the Judges thought otherwise, and this led to wild protests and eventually Abrahamian rejecting the medal by leaving it off at the podium after the ceremony.

This incident made the IOC to take disciplinary action against him withdrawing the medal from him and barring his further participation in any of the events at Olympics.
