    At issue are administrative reasons regarding citizenship. There entire team consisted of imported Eastern European athletes.

    Those Moldavans have been competing for UAE at least two years now. Victor Scortov even won a silver medal at this year's World Championships. Perhaps the Asian Games organizer has a different standard than the IJF?
