“Sazali was the clear favourite and they fixed it to give the UAE athlete the gold. He was robbed of the gold. We feel sad for Sazali,” said Zolkples. Sazali’s coach Milos Sarcev was shocked when the UAE athlete was picked as the winner. “It is a total disgrace. Sazali was any time better than the UAE bodybuilder in build and performance. “There is no aspect in which Sazali could lose even by a point to the Arab,” said Sarcev. “I have been a bodybuilder for 25 years and as a professional coach for 15 years and I have never biased judging in a competition. “I heard that it happens in Asia but this is the first time I have witnessed it. What a disgrace!
