You can always see the Olympic spirit in the competition. And there is the one in men's freestyle 60kg event.

The competition was between China's Gao Feng and Iran's Ahmari Zarinkolaei Saeid. The Iranian made foul as he bit his Chinese opponent under the passive situation in the second round. He was punished by the judge.

Gao Feng said, "He did bit me at that time. You can still see the mark on my hand. Yes he did bit me."

The Iranian injured his knee later in the competition. Although he completed the match, he lost to Gao Feng. The Chinese took the bronze medal. Gao showcased his Olympic spirit by supporting his opponent with hands.

"Despite he lost, I should give him the respect which he deserved. He had not given up the competition and this is our wrestling people's moral character."

After the judge's annoucement, Gao carried the Iranian in the arms and left the court. And this is what the Olympic spirit should be.
