The IOC decided not to award the medal to fourth-place finisher   Chon Chol Ho (PRK), as Samadov's offence had not been committed in the context of the competition. Chol became angry with officials for not handing the medal to him, and verbally abused and attempted to attack them before being restrained by security.
