The Pumas 7s made a formal claim for the suspension to Gaston Revol after expulsion before South Africa 7s in the quarterfinals.
The Argentine team is in the semifinals of the Olympic Games and will play against Fiji. The Cordovan back who was sent off in the quarterfinals will not be able to be, until now.
Argentina made the request so that, after reviewing the play, it is not a red card but a yellow card so that Revol could be present.
The committee rejected the claim and, for now, the Argentine player will not be able to play against Fiji. The selected team led by Santiago Gómez Cora will appeal the decision at 7:30 p.m. (Argentine time). The match for the second semi-final will start at 23.30.
