BEIJING TAEKWONDO BLIND JUDGES.
BEIJING TAEKWONDO JUDGES are in bad need of glasses. Over the past few days it has already been echoed about the poor judgements being given in the Taekwondo arena.
In the graphics you will clearly see the GB Team member Sarah Stevenson being robbed of two points.
The first graphic shot shows the head strike, the second graphic shows the grimace of pain on the opponent and the third graphic clearly shows the extent of the force the opponent was hit.
The fourth graphic at the bottom shows one of the four judges viewing from a different angle as the head strike hits. Click on the graphics for a closer look.
The Taekwondo judges; ALL FOUR OF THEM never seen the hit resulting in a loss instead of a win for part of the GB Team.
Considering this is a Sport famed for respect and etiquette this is a disgrace.
UPDATE ON THIS REPORT;
IN AN AMAZING TURN AROUND SARAH STEVENSON HAS BEEN AWARDED THE EXPECTED TWO POINTS WHICH SHE SHOULD HAVE HAD TO BEGIN WITH. IT'S GOOD TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE WITH THE SENSE TO VIEW THE VIDEO HAS TAKEN THIS DECISION FOR THE BENEFIT OF SARAH STEVENSON AND THE WHOLE BRITISH TEAM NOT FORGETTING THE GOOD NAME OF TAEKWONDO. IT ALSO REINFORCES OUR BELIEF THAT THE BEIJING OLYMPIC TAEKWONDO TEAM OF JUDGES NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT THEMSLVE'S AS THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THE BRITISH TEAM HAVE BEEN PENALISED WRONGLY.
Sarah Stevenson finally earned herself the elusive Olympic taekwondo medal she has craved since her Games début as a teenager in Sydney eight years ago by winning the Bronze medal for Team GB the first medal in the sport. WELL DONE SARAH!
