Cheating scandalEdit

Spain's intellectual disability basketball team won the tournament and gold medals, but these medals were soon stripped from the team. Shortly after the Games closed, Carlos Ribagorda, a member of the victorious team and an undercover journalist, revealed to the Spanish business magazine Capital that ten of the twelve members of the team were "ringers", that is, normal basketball players who were not disabled recruited to make the team stronger. None of these members underwent tests to verify they were actually disabled, nor would they have qualified had the tests been performed.
