Olympia 2022: After Daniela Meyer’s Bronze Medal, Fanny Smith plans to protest the jury’s decision

“It’s definitely the hardest day of my life,” former world champion Smith wrote Friday night (local time) in an Instagram story. “I can’t accept the decision.”

Together with the Swiss Confederation, it now wants to “examine all possibilities” for the classification challenge.

The German side did not fear any consequences on Friday afternoon. “The contact rule does not provide for the possibility of protest, and the jury’s decision is not subject to appeal. It was also unanimously affirmed by the review board,” athletic director Helle Hurdt said at a press conference.
