Earlier today, the International Olympic Committee announced the updated list of placements from the 120kg bracket at the ’12 London Olympic Games. The article, which was posted on www.olympics.org, laid out the top eight finishers after the removal of Artur TAYMAZOV (UZB) and Davit MODZMANASHVILI (GEO).
The decision was taken during today’s meeting of the International Olympic Committee Executive Board, following the previous disqualification of a number of athletes and the results of their events being adjusted accordingly by the International Federations involved.
The reallocations concern five events in three sports.
See the new rankings for these events below:
