They add the highest snatch with the highest clean and jerk. unfortunately he was unsuccessful in the clean and jerk unable to lift 177kg twice and 181kg's so he finished with a DNF.

we still have 15 athletes left. 5 weightlifters and 7 wrestlers. During the 2008 olympics we won all our medals in weightlifting (3 bronze) and wrestling (2 bronze). Wrestling doesnt start until August 5. We have 2 weightlifters going tomorrow. Tigran Martirosyan has a good chance of getting a medal.

Boxing: Judges under fire amid "fix" claims

Iran's Ali Mazaheri (L) refuses to take part in the decision after being disqualified …

LONDON (Reuters) - Olympic judges and referees came under fire on Wednesday with one fighter accusing them of "a fix", another successfully appealing a loss and even boxing great Lennox Lewis questioning some of their calls.

Iran's Ali Mazaheri cried foul when the heavyweight was disqualified after being warned three times for persistent holding against Cuban Jose Larduet Gomez despite leading by two points going into the second round.

"It was a fix. I could have got a bronze easily if it hadn't been for that," an irate Mazaheri, who walked out of the ring before the decision was officially announced, told reporters through a translator.

"In my previous fights I had done really well. It was a set up."

The International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) responded to Mazaheri's allegations in an email to Reuters, saying: "The Iranian boxer received three warnings during his bout.

"According to Rule 12.2.1 of the AIBA Technical & Competition Rules, 'only three warnings may be given to the same boxer in one contest. The third warning brings automatic disqualification'."

Two bouts earlier, Japan's bantamweight Satoshi Shimizu, trailing by seven points going into the last round against Magomed Abdulhamidov, knocked the Azerbaijani down six times, the first of which he struggled to get up from.

The judges scored the round 10-10, handing Shimizu two extra points for a warning against Abdulhamidov, who propped himself up against the top rope as the referee raised his hand in victory.

The 25-year-old fighter was helped out of the ring by his trainer and Shimizu's team appealed the outcome.

The Japanese boxer's team leader Masamori Yamane accused the referee of trying to support Abdulhamidov by attempting to fix his headgear.

After deliberating for over an hour, AIBA said that under its rules, the referee should have given the Azerbaijani fighter "at least" three standing counts which would have resulted in the contest being stopped.

They, therefore, overturned the result, handing victory to Shimizu, who was staggered by the original decision hours earlier.


"I was shocked about the result. He fell down so many times. Why didn't I win? I don't understand," Shimizu told reporters, adding he thought the referee should have stopped the fight with Abdulhamidov obviously groggy in the final round.

"This is the second Olympics I have attended and even in Beijing I wasn't happy about the judgement, so I don't know what to do about that. I am really not happy about that."

AIBA officials will consider on Thursday whether to sanction the referee in Shimizu's bout, the association said in a statement.

In December last year, an AIBA-appointed investigation committee dismissed allegations that Azerbaijan was promised two boxing gold medals the London Olympics in exchange for a $10-million loan to the sport's ruling body.

In a statement released at the time, the Special Investigation Committee (SIC) said the report aired on September 23 on the British broadcaster the BBC's Newsnight program was "groundless and unsupported by any credible evidence".

Before sitting down to commentate on the session for British radio, former world heavyweight champion Lewis said he was impressed by the talent on show but had concerns about the judging.

"What I'm concerned about is probably the judging. You never know who is going to win until the end of the fight," said Britain's Lewis, a dual citizen who won gold for Canada in 1988.

Look at the Badminton, the 8 Asian women were naive in thinking they could fool the world, but the problem is the round-robin tournament structure itself.

you guys can see the third round here
http://www.nbcolympics.com/news-blog...l-rulings.html
i felt like punching the ref after watching that. It was horrible. The Azeri kept falling and the reg just told him to get up and didnt count it as a knockdown. The Azeri would get his ass kicked, fall and the ref would just tell him to get up.

Olympic boxing officials punished for controversial rulings
By: Ryan Maquinana, NBC OlympicsUPDATED: Aug 2, 1:36p ET

Japan's Satoshi Shimizu initially loses his Round of 16 men's 56 kg bout to Magomed Abdulhamidov in highly controversial fashion before having the judges' decision overturned.

Referee Ishanguly Meretnyyazov of Turkmenistan has been sent home "with immediate effect" for his actions, mainly failing to rule a standing-eight count for any of the six instances in which Azerbaijan's Magomed Abdulhamidov hit the canvas during the third round of his bout with Japan's Satoshi Shimizu.
Abdulhamidov was awarded the win by the judges, a decision that was eventually overturned by AIBA.
The AIBA Olympic Compliance Committee has also expelled International Technical Official Aghanian Abiyev of Azerbaijan "with immediate effect." Abiyev has since departed from the AIBA Delegation's hotel.
In addition, German referee Frank Scharmach has been suspended for five days through Aug. 6 following his questionable disqualification of Iranian boxer Ali Mazaheri for excessive holding in his bout with Cuba's Jose Larduet.
"I deeply regret that we had to take these decisions. However, our main concern has been and will always be the protection of the integrity and fair-play of our competitions. I will take all possible steps to reinforce this," said AIBA president Dr. Ching-Kuo Wu in a statement to the press.
The Abdulhamidov-Shimizu bout has garnered international attention for the absurdity of its outcome. NBC ringside boxing commentators Teddy Atlas and Bob Papa were incensed at the developments, eliciting emotional diatribes regarding their opinions of the state of amateur boxing.
"If it winds up going to the fighter from Azerbaijan, you really have to think about what the intentions of that referee was," Atlas said before the judges' verdict was announced. "By not giving him eight-counts, by not stopping the fight, maybe not even allowing a fighter to quit, the fighter from Azerbaijan might have wanted to quit. If it goes to him, you have to wonder what the intentions of this referee was."
Papa was equally infuriated with his take on the matter.
"I'm reading from the rules," Papa said. "If a boxer is down on the mat from a punch, the referee is to give a ten-second count. If the boxer can't continue, it's a knockout...This referee never administered an eight-count for an injured boxer, He should be eliminated from the Olympics."
"Immediately," Atlas replied. "This is going to be a joke if it winds up not going to the Japanese fighter."
When Abdulhamidov's arm was raised in victory by the judges' score of 22-17--a margin that included the Azerbaijani receiving 10 points in the final round despite his multiple trips to the canvas due to Shimizu's punches--Atlas and Papa were livid, alluding to the potential foul play on the part of Meretnyyazov and others.
"Unbelievable!" Atlas exclaimed. "That's what the referee wanted to do. He wanted to save that fighter. That's incredible!"
"Everybody here from AIBA should look at themselves and realize why this sport is considered a joke at this point," Papa added.
