FILA President Nenad Lalovic writes in an email to The Associated Press that “the Egyptian female wrestler was immediately suspended.” The sanction prevented her competing at the Mediterranean Games which finished Sunday in Turkey.
Lalovic says “our legal commission will soon decide about the final fine” for Moustafa.
And the beauty of it all- Kartysh won the tournament. She now ranks #2 in the FILA world ranking.
Ah, poetic justice! There is no place for politics in sports.
