Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Sports and President of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee Prince Abdul Aziz receptacle Turki al-Faisal declared that karate player Tarek Hamedi will be respected and gifted 5 million Saudi riyals (US$1.3 million).

Hamedi will get back a silver Olympic decoration in the wake of being precluded from the men’s over-75kg last when he tossed a high kick and took out his rival. Hamedi was driving on focuses when he tossed the kick that struck Iranian competitor Sajad Ganjzadeh in the neck, leaving him unmoving and being eliminated from the field on a cot.
