                                      ULAAN BATAAR, Mongolia -- A skin-baring protest by a pair of Mongolian wrestling coaches at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics might have struck some observers as slightly bizarre. Nike Air Jordan Dames . Back home in their landlocked Asian nation, however, its been praised as the appropriate response to bad refereeing.Mongolian media and the public reacted angrily to the decision to award victory to Uzbekistans Ikhtiyor Navruzov over Mongolias Mandakhnaran Ganzorig in the 65 kilogram freestyle bronze medal match on Saturday.While Ganzorig, who had already started celebrating, fell to his knees in disappointment, his coaches went much further.Byambarenchin Bayaraa took his shoes and shirt off and threw them to the mat in disgust in front of the officials.Tsenrenbataar Tsostbayar stripped all the way down to his blue briefs. The Brazilian crowd started chanting Mongolia! Mongolia!Former freestyle wrestler Nyamjav Baasanjav said Tuesday the referees should have given Mandakhnaran a warning instead of awarding a key penalty point to Navruzov.This shows the referees were biased and favored the Uzbek wrestler, Baasanjav claimed. Everyone can see from the video recording of the wrestling that Mandakhnaran was the better wrestler. Mongolia was robbed.Wrestling is one of Mongolias traditional sports -- alongside archery and horseback riding -- and has an intense following in the country of slightly fewer than 3 million people.Stripping ones clothes off is considered an acceptable way of peacefully protesting a decision and the coachs actions were widely embraced.The internet loves the Mongolian coaches for this protest action, said Myagmardorj Boldbaatar, an entrepreneur and active social media user. The coaches didnt break anything or physically hurt anyone. It was nothing personal. Jordan Schoenen Sale . Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Will Claye kept a close watch on his backpack while he competed in the Olympic triple jump.With good reason: It had a diamond ring in it.Moments after earning a silver medal Tuesday, Claye bounded into the stands, dropped to a knee and proposed to his longtime girlfriend, hurdler Queen Harrison.She said yes.A medal and a marriage proposal -- now thats quite a day.When I woke up this morning I was like, `Today is going to be the best day of my life, said Claye, who finished behind good friend Christian Taylor, as the two Americans went 1-2 for a second straight Summer Games. Im going to go out there and do what I have to do on the track first and I am going to make her my fiancee after that.Claye said his focus was only on the competition, even given the surprise he was about to spring. It had to be that way to keep up with Taylor, who jumped 17.86 meters on his first attempt -- a distance that held up. Claye went 17.76 and Chinas Dong Bin jumped 17.58 for bronze.Taylor and Claye have had a robust rivalry for years after being teammates at the University of Florida.Its just who executes on that day better, Claye said. Were equally talented.On the track, the stage belonged to Taylor. Afterward, Claye took it over.Claye climbed up a railing and was helped up a wall. It was a complete surprise to Taylor where Claye was going, but the champion was impressed that Claye had anything left to even climb into the stands.I turrned around and saw him over there and everyones saying, `Aww, Taylor said. Jordan Schoenen Aanbieding. The camera zoomed in and I saw what was going on.There was the 25-year-old Claye, who, unbeknownst to everyone but two of Harrisons closest friends, was dropping to a knee. His family was just as shocked.They were like, `Man, youre slick, Claye said. No one knew. It was pretty cool.Only two days earlier, Chinas He Zi had the silver medal slipped around her neck when her boyfriend pulled out a ring and asked her to marry him. Last week, after a rugby match, the girlfriend of Brazilian player Isadora Cerullo went down to the field and asked Cerullo to marry her. Another proposal happened at race walking.Claye made Harrison cry with his impromptu proposal.I told her she was my best friend. I told her she was my rib. I told her I want to grow old with her, Claye recounted. I want her to be by my side for the rest of my life. Shes helped me to grow into the man I am today.Claye had the ring designed before Olympic trials earlier this summer, but had no idea when -- or even how -- he was going to ask her. Rio de Janeiro seemed like as good of place as any.Harrison was in the stands after not qualifying at the Olympic trials. But she wanted to be there for Claye. She wore her Will Power T-shirt. It looked good with the diamond. ' ' '
