An Olympic Fencer Refuses To Leave The Floor After Getting Screwed
In the match that would decide who would fence for the gold, Germany's Britta Heidemann landed a match-clinching touch. But was it in time? South Korea's Shin A Lam didn't think so. So she refused to leave.
Despite the clock issue, they ruled that the touch was good and that Heidemann was the victor. South Korea's coach went off to file a formal appeal.
The Second Ruling:
Security came out and took Shin away. The crowd gave her a standing ovation.
Shin went on to lose her bronze medal match.
