The story was on Yahoo’s front page for most of the day and has gathered a lot of coverage.
The English blogosphere, that consists of bunch of whiny Emo’s, is buzzing over Ara Abrahamian’s refusal to accept the bronze medal.
Majority don’t know a thing about wrestling, but are quick to give opinions. No one cares that at one point Andrea Minguzzi was completely outside the circle, and 0 points were given to Abrahamian. Most of the blogers, whom are of American Anglo-Saxon descent, need a reminder that the 1972 US basketball team still hasn’t accepted its silver medals and their collecting dust in Lusanne, Switzerland, that’s 36 years, what a bunch of sore losers they are, right?
Anyway, I hope the Wrestling federation learns a lesson and changes its ways of unfair officiating.
Whats more interesting is that before he left the medal stand, Ara congratulated the Turkish wrestler with whom he was sharing the 3rd place. I guess that’s for us, Armenians, to talk about. I believe that was a very nice and classy gesture.
