The Pumas 7’s made a formal complaint for the second time, but without success, for the suspension of Gaston Revol after expulsion before South Africa 7’s in the quarterfinals.
The Argentine team is in the semifinals of the Olympic Games and will play against Fiji. However, the Cordovan back, who was sent off in the quarterfinals, will not be able to be. But not only the red one will mean missing the next game, but Revol says goodbye to what remains of the contest, since it was decided to sanction it with four suspension dates.
The objective of Argentina when making the request twice after reviewing the play, was that the sanction be considered as an object of a yellow card and not a red card as it was after a Foul against Seldyn Davids less than three minutes into the game. And, consequently, Revol could be present in the next matches.
However, the committee rejected the claim again and the Argentine player will not be able to play against Fiji in the second semifinal that will begin at 23.30 in our country, nor the subsequent match for an Olympic medal.
