In addition to the review, the Biden administration announced new sanctions against a Cuban official and a government brigade that the administration says was involved in human rights abuses during the protests.For more reporting from the Associated Press, see below.
Tokyo. "Everyone knows, I won," Super heavyweight boxer Mourad Aliev - he had just been disqualified by the referee. Probably wrongly. Now the CAS has to decide.
Sklat in the fight of the French super-heavyweight Mourad Aliev at the Olympic Boat Tour of the Olympic Tournament: The 26-year-old was ill-disqualified on Sunday in his quarter-finals illegally and then entered a seat strike. The matter will probably land before the ad hoc department of the International Sport Court (CAS).
"That's unfair, everyone has seen that I won," Aliev roared and slapped towards a television camera. Previously, he had been excluded because of an alleged head against his opponent Frazer Clarke from Great Britain. Later, Aliev insisted that the Klebpiebreiter had granted him to have taken a wrong decision, which can not be withdrawn.
Not all anti-lockdown protesters are conspiracy-theorists and extremists
Many of the demonstrators on Saturday were ordinary Australians who just wanted to have their say — and be heard.Hundreds were fined and dozens were arrested during the demonstrations, which turned violent at times.
"You realize that you have made a mistake, but as it stands in the regulations, you can not undo the decision. That's a scandal," Aliev said in French television . Clarke called "confusing" the situation.
"There is no appeal," John Dovi said, the technical director of the French Boxverband: "The supervisor certifies a referee error, he says there is no mistake of Mourad, but they can not do anything."
President Brigitte Henriques of France's Olympic Committee (CNOSF) explained, "a dossier put together to make the decision before the CAS".
Disputed decisions up to obvious misjudgers are not uncommon in the Olympic Box History, but 2016 in Rio escalated the competitions. The World Association of Aiba, which may not be responsible for internal scandals in Tokyo for the direction of the tournament, first blocked all 36 points and referees after the games.
