Arsehole Of The Week: Vitaly Mutko

Arsehole Of The Week: Vitaly Mutko
By Hal LaRoux Updated

It's early doors sure, but I doubt you won't argue that Vitaly Musko is completely deserving of the inaugural Balls.ie Arsehole of the Week award after these comments about Katie Taylor's fight.

Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko has questioned some of the judging at the London Olympics, specifically pointing to Irish lightweight Katie Taylor's 10-8 win over Russia’s Sofya Ochigava in the women’s final on Thursday.

“How can you give such scores? You’d have to be blind,” Mutko was quoted by RIA Novosti news agency as saying.

The head of Russia’s Olympic Committee, Alexander Zhukov, said the judges may have been swayed by the enthusiastic cheering from the Irish fans. Mutko, however, was less forgiving, suggesting the judges have favoured certain nations in boxing and weightlifting events.

“We see that a happy ending is being prepared in boxing,” he said.
