Taekwondo athlete kicks referee in head at Olympics in Beijing

by: Jack Bratcher

During an Olympic Taekwondo bronze-medal match, Cuba’s Angel Matos acting out in frustration, deliberately kicked a referee in the head after the athlete was disqualified. In response, the World Taekwondo Federation has recommended that he be banned for life. The head of the federation seemed very embarrassed by the incident and also called for the ban of Matos’ coach probably because he seemed unapologetic.

Matos was actually winning 3-2, with 1:02 left in the second round, when he fell to the mat after being hit by his opponent, Kazakhstan’s Arman Chilmanov. Fighters get one minute for injury time, and Matos was disqualified when his time ran out and he was still sitting on the mat.
