Paralympian is stripped of gold medal for being three minutes late
Malaysian athlete Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli was stripped of his gold medal after he won the men's shot put F20 on Tuesday because he had arrived three minutes late to the competition. Zolkefli and two other competitors were initially allowed to participate in the event because "they may have had a logical reason for being late," said International Paralympic Committee (IPC) spokesman Craig Spence. "Therefore, we allowed them to compete and look at the facts of the matter afterward," Spence added. However, a referee later concluded that there was "no justifiable reason for the athletes' failure" to show up to the event in time, according to a statement from track and field governing body World Para Athletics. -CNN Sports
