Rio Olympics 2016: Watch Mongolian coaches strip in front of Judges to protest

In a bizarre incident at the Rio Olympics 65Kg wrestling bronze medal event on Sunday,  two Mongolian coaches stripped off and hurled their shoes in protest, after their wrestler was denied a bronze medal for "fleeing" his opponent, believing the match was over and that he had won. 
Wrestler Mandakhnaran Ganzorig from Mongolia was denied victory for running away from his Uzbek opponent in the dying seconds of their bronze medal contest.
Earlier on the day Ganzorig defeated Indian Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt in his first match of the event and made his spot in the bronze medal event.
One of the coaches, Byambarenchin Bayaraa, told reporters later: “This was a protest. There was a problem with the refereeing. Three million people in Mongolia waited for this bronze medal and now we have no medal.”
Ganzorig, leading Ikhtiyor Navruzov by seven points to six, taunted his opponent by dancing around him in the last few seconds of the match.
For this the judges penalized Ganzorig and adjusted the score to 7-7, for ‘fleeing the hold’, or refusing to engage with his opponent. They then added a further point to the Uzbek’s score after the Mongolian corner challenged the decision and had the challenge rejected.
Seems the coaches were very much inspired by WWE, but this incident surely proves that Never celebrate before you win.
