this news has been highlighted a lot but its not a standalone incident happened. there are lot of cases during this years Asian games for ruling to go in favor of Koreans. which indeed is sad news.


i was reading couple of news paper and Facebook articles and some of the comments by people are pathetic and derogatory. what ever stand she took, i think she had all the right to do it. its her life and sacrifice so no one else other than her will feel what she felt when she lost it for whatever reason. training for years and sacrificing alot in the way with little or no support from your local sports committees one would really take it on heart.

What about the Korean who sit in protest n the Seoul Olympics years ago, he was a bad sportsmanship too . I think the referee is afraid of home crowd not to give the decision to the Korean against the Indian.

One of the worst decisions in boxing came in favour of the home boxer in the Olympics, the loser went on to be a multiple world champion. Roy jones junior sat in the ring for an hour but it did him no good. scandalous decision.

The organising committee would be better spending their time viewing the tapes of the fight rather than trying to justify the obvious biased decision of the judges in favour for the Korean.

If this is the response of the organising committee to an incident that has sparked worldwide debates over this whole event, then this is proof enough in my opinion that Korea cannot seriously be considered for any future major events.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
