Mongolian coach explains bizarre, naked protest

Share This

Just in case anyone was confused, a Mongolian coach who came close to baring all on Sunday explained that the bizarre act was a form of protest.

After Mandakhnaran Ganzorig was controversially stripped of a bronze medal, Byambarenchin Bayaraa and another one of the fighter’s coaches decided to follow suit and strip themselves of their clothing.

Standing on the mat in just their underwear, the pair of middle-aged Mongolian men proceeded to toss their clothing to the ground in disgust while screaming at judges.

“This was a protest. There was a problem with the refereeing,” Bayaraa told Wayne Drehs of ESPN.

“The referees were not good. Three million people in Mongolia waited for this bronze medal and now we have no medal. 100 percent of the stadium supported us.”

Brazilian national force officers eventually restored order and escorted the pair of irate coaches, who opted to put their clothes back on as they were ushered out of the arena.
