this is called modern day justice.. shameless fellows giving warning to spirited sports persons!! This is one of the reasons Indian are not in sports... people knows even from the beginning a biased selections and medal awards!!! better to be a Professional rather than working on the sponsored/biased awards and unresponsive govts!! :(
When all the video footages are available, why not they frame rules like in cricket to see the correctness of the verdict when players like Sarita can immediately refer it to the 4th umpire/ judge whatever they call. This is not a civilised rule if a player or their officials are forced to digest uncivilised decisions of judges and it is quite ridiculous that a player not willing to accept such biased judgements are termed as "unsporting" and "contrary to the spirit of the games". Don't worry Sarita, Satyameva Jayate.
The Photo speaks it all about the callousness, pseudo-sportsmanship and the winning at all cost attitude in today's games. Sportspersons trying to live it up in the spirit of the game are lost in the cut-throat race.
PLEASE BOYCOTT KOREAN PRODUCTS LIKE MOBILES, REFRIGERATORS, TV ETC. FOR SOME TIME, AT LEAST DURING DIWALI. KOREANS ARE CULPRITS. THEY SHOULD NOT BE LET OFF EASILY. THEY SHOULD PAY FOR THIS SO THAT THEY DO NOT EVER THINK OF DOING IT AGAIN TO OTHER SPORTPERSONS.

No more proof required. From her looks itself we can conclude that she is a well behaved girl. It is very difficult to control emotions in situations like this when there is no justification for the horrible wrong doing of the judges. Even the declared winner was felt bad about the decision in her favour later after seeing the match video, irrespective of her nationality.

I think it is high time our PM should give more emphasis for the well being of the participants in athletics as well. Even though we have got talents, we are still far behind countries like China & South Koerea in motivating these talents. Enough budget provision should be given for improvising the facilities for training and grooming the new talents. For a country like India it is not a big deal to spend some money for this purpose.
People like Mr. Wei Jizhong must understand the pain of a sportsperson, when she or he get a raw deal like this. One can understand a misjudgement but in the instant case, it was a well thought out plan to favour the host's player. 4 years of rigorous training yielded nothing because of the partisan decision by the judges. Before pointing finger at others, it would be better for organizers to correct themselves. India should take up the matter strongly with Asian Boxing Federation and ensure that such day light robbery is not repeated in future. if Mr.Wei Jizhong is an upright person he should be ashamed of making these observations.
