Sunday is the final day of the Rio Olympics. This means that basically everything that is happening today is being done for a medal, so emotions are high among many of the competitors who have waited a fortnight to earn their shot at glory.

One of those competitions was the bronze medal match in men’s freestyle wrestling in the 65 kilogram weight class. The match was between Uzbekistan’s Ikhtiyor Navruzov and Mongolia’s Ganzorigiin Mandakhnaran. It was a close match, and Navruzov ended up coming out on top, 3-1. This really upset Mandakhnaran’s coaches, who felt like a controversial call cost him the bronze. In fact, it upset them so much that they started stripping and one went all the way down to his skivvies on the mat.
