Swedish wrestler Abrahamian rejects bronze medal
Abrahamian, who was a silver medallist at the Athens Olympics, threw his medal down in the middle of the wrestling mat before walking out of the arena, slamming an aluminium barricade with his fist, and announcing that he was retiring. "This will be my last match. I wanted to take gold, so I consider this Olympics a failure," the 33-year-old said.
The Swede also had to be restrained by his team-mates earlier when, during his 84kg semi-final bout with eventual gold medallist Andrea Minguzzi of Italy, he shouted at the referee and approached the judges' table to complain about a decision. He later claimed that his loss to Minguzzi was "totally unjustified", while his coach added that the result was down to "politics".
The medal was later returned to the sport's governing body.
