If you had spent more time on your research than you did on your presentation you might have read that Olympic bylaws require a fencer to remain on the Piste (you know that thing they fence on?) while a ruling is being deliberated. She did not “refuse to leave”. Furthermore, you seem to be under the wrong impression as to the source of the complaint. Again if you had done your research, you might have uncovered that what actually transpired was that the clock had become stuck (you know, not counting down?) and so Heidemann had more time to complete the attack than she should have had.
