Moscow silver medalist Piotr Malachowski (POL) used an iPad to analyze technical issues during the discus competition. The iPad device was relayed to Malachowski from his team members through a credentialed on-field photographer who was at the discus venue.
The Estonian federation considered lodging an official protest but Olympic Champion and Moscow bronze medalist Gerd Kanter refused. “It had no point. They were too far away but rules are rules and using iPad during the competition is prohibited.”
