help us get to 1,000

We, the undersigned, are outraged by the unfair and unsubstantiated disqualification of Ali Mazaheri in his boxing match against Cuba’s Jose Larduet Gomez (1st August 2012), at the London Olympic Games 2012. We demand a rematch and the immediate expulsion by the IOC and AIBA of the referee responsible – Frank Scharmach.
On 2nd August 2012, AIBA suspended Frank Scharmach for five days for his decision to disqualify Ali. This is unacceptable. Try comparing that to the four years (at least)of Ali’s life that were dedicated to preparation for the Olympic Games. Due to Ali’s age, it is unlikely that he will ever be able to participate in the Olympic Games again.
Also, the london olympics wrestling section owes the Iranians an apology for unfair judging in the Wresteling match between Iranian wresteler Saeid Abdvali and Frensh wresteler Steeve Guenot.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
