Koreans and Japanese to Formally Protest to the IOC

The Korean Times reports that the Korean and Japanese Handball Federations will jointly protest to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the IHF (International Handball Federation). The move to protest to the IOC in addition to the IHF is significant as well as the two nations agreeing to jointly protest. Additionally, the Times further reports that the Asian Handball Federation (AHF) snubbed an official document from the IHF, which asked the AHF to have the Kuwait – South Korea match to be officiated by German referees to fend off possible misjudgments

One thought on “Koreans and Japanese to Formally Protest to the IOC

  1. Interesting that they ignored the IHF request to use German refs to head off any controversy. I see why Japan is involved, if they prove wrong doing, they would get the 2nd chance place.
