Taipei TKD Competitor Disqualified From Asian Games after 9-0 Lead
Yang Shu-Chun, who won a bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 was DQ'ed after judges claim to have found extra sensors in the heels of her LaJust socks.
I'm not taking sides here, but it seems unfair of the WTF officials to give an immediate dq after just the first round when she is clearly leading 9-0 based mostly on head kicks. There were still two more rounds left, and I think any points that Yang was given electronically and not from the center referee should have been voided and maybe a point or two deduction.
This speaks directly towards some of the bias and corruption in WTF sport TKD that these electronic hogu were supposed to be eliminating. There is no way things like this can keep happening if people expect TKD to remain in the Olympics.
It also points out some major flaws in the LaJust system and makes me wonder more about complaints I have heard from local tkd competitors who used the LaJust system at the US Open for the past two years.
Anyone have experience using any of the EBP systems (LaJust, Daedo, Adidas)? I have heard nothing but praise for Adidas, but LaJust and Daedo both seem to still have issues.
