In an unprecedented move by the FIE, the original silver medal winner was excluded from the event and, as a result, bronze medalist Gerek Meinhardt will be awarded the silver
Serge Timacheff reported in person on the event: “Italian Tommaso Lari, who apparently broke a wireless device, threw some things, and swore at the referee after losing the final bout to Egyptian Alaa El din El Sayed, was given a black card by the referee. The FIE has upheld the call after reviewing the issue.”
