楊淑君失格風波英文版(增訂補充版) 頭條要聞 蘋果日報 20101123 壹蘋果網絡
Yang Shu-chun was disqualified amid controversy at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.World Taikwondo Federation (WTF) Secretary-General Yang Jin-Suk called her a cheater.

But he repeatedly contradicted himself.First he said old-model sensor socks she wore were banned.

Then he said she stuck the sensors in the wrong place.But all the sensors were manufactured to Korean design with pre-cut sensor patches, impossible to misplace.

The sensor material was imported direct from the designer.Still the secretary general insisted that Yang cheated by sticking illegal sensors on her heels.

But the pictures tell a different story.A judge said Yang's new model socks were not sensitive enough. She only passed equipment inspection after she changed to old-model socks.But before the bout, another judge told her to remove the sensors on her heels.

She complied.The recording of the bout tells the whole story. There was no sensor patchs on Yang Shu-chun's heels during the match. Yang dominated the match 9-0 before she was wrongfully disqualified.

Yang and her coach asked for a thorough investigation, which the secretary denied.Chinese Taipei coach Liu slammed the WTF saying they cannot explain why Yang is disqualified.Yang's mood has recovered somewhat. "It's one day later. The bout is over. Even though this outcome is hard to take, both for me and for all of us. We have to face up to reality.

It's probably the worst day of my life."According to the Apple Daily's phone poll, almost 80 percent of Taiwanese support the boycott of Korean goods over this incident. The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) formed a three-member panel to investigate the case.

They interviewed Yang asking her if she knew the sensors on her heels were against code. Yang said she thought she was using WTF-approved gear. The panel asked when she applied the heel sensors.

Yang said she did so at equipment inspection, before she was approved to fight.Asian Taekwondo Union President Lee Dai Soon expressed his regrets and said the case is undergoing investigation. Apple Action News
