New Delhi, Dec 10:
Sarita broke down on the podium during the medal ceremony and refused to receive her medal following a controversial semi-final defeat in the lightweight (57-60kg) category.
She accepted the medal but handed it to South Korean silver medalist Ji Na Park, who had defeated Sarita in a disputed bout.
Sarita’s stance led the International Boxing Association (AIBA) to provisionally suspend the boxer. However the AIBA is yet to take a final call on the quantum of the punishment. (IANS)
