A survey identified “approximately 11, possibly fewer”, including medal competitions
California– According to a survey conducted by the International Boxing Association, in the boxing match of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, referees and judges “conspired and submissively” “manipulated” the match, including competing for medals, which affected the outcome of the match.
McLaren stated that “the key figures decide which rules don’t apply to them.” McLaren said that there is a culture of fear and intimidation among referees. McLaren didn’t say how many games this might affect. It is not known. According to McLaren, the investigation identified “about 11 games, maybe less”, including medal games.
Richard McLaren was hired by AIB to investigate this issue. He stated that officials at the agency selected referees to make sure that the game could be manipulated in the qualifying stage as well as at the Rio Olympics. McLaren stated that similar things could occur in London in 2012.
McLaren stated: “This informal structure permits accomplices and submissive judge and referees…to be assigned to certain matches to manipulate their outcomes,” McLaren claimed. He added that these judges and referees “know what happened” or just numbers. “Incompetent”, willing and able to ignore signs of manipulation.
Investigators allege that AIBA officials used their power to choose arbitrators and judges. The committee responsible for supervising these appointments approves only all decisions.
McLaren says that McLaren said McLaren was told by McLaren who the winner should be the morning prior to the game. McLaren also claimed that McLaren did not say who the first line of dispute resolution would be.
The Rio Olympics’ rulings are controversial, including a widely publicized ruling in which the Russian’s Vladimir Nikitin (Vladimir Nikitin) and the Irishman’s Michael Conlan won the match. McLaren did not mention whether the battle had been scheduled.
Umar Kremlev, a Russian businessman, has led AIB since December 2016. According to Kremlev, he had changed how he judges fights since 2016.
Eyewitness testimony was included to a discussion about a Mongolian fighter beating another Frenchman in a bribe amounting to up $250,000 in the semifinals. Witnesses stated that a Kazakh served as a referee, and asked for money in return for the Mongols’ favor. The Mongols won the “very uncommon card”, and the five judges all gave the same score.
Kremlov stated in a statement that Professor McLaren had been hired because there was nothing to hide. “We will attempt to adopt any useful advice, and seek legal counsel on how to handle those involved in the settlement. Suggestion. Fight.
After being suspended in 2016, neither the AIB nor the judges interfered with the Tokyo Olympics 2016. The International Olympic Committee organizes the Tokyo boxing match, and not the AIB.
