Egyptian wrestler suspended for biting Israeli opponent
Enas Moustafa Youssef Khourshid also reportedly disrespected wrestling protocol by refusing to shake the hand of Ilana Kartysh of Israel.
Wrestling's governing body says it has suspended an Egyptian athlete who allegedly bit her Israeli opponent during a bout.
Enas Moustafa Youssef Khourshid also reportedly disrespected wrestling protocol by refusing to shake the hand of Ilana Kartysh of Israel before or after their semifinal match at a Grand Prix event last month in Sassari, Italy.
FILA President Nenad Lalovic writes in an email to The Associated Press that "the Egyptian female wrestler was immediately suspended." The sanction prevented her competing at the Mediterranean Games, which ended Sunday in Turkey.
Lalovic says "our legal commission will soon decide about the final fine."
Despite allegedly being bitten, Kartysh won the 147-pound match and went on to win the tournament. Her FILA world ranking improved to No. 2.
