This was a wrestleoff for the 74 kg Olympic Spot at the 2004 Olympics between Zoltan Hunyady (Guelph Wrestling Club) and Olympic Champion Daniel Igali (Burnaby Mountain Wrestling Club). Things get a little heated. This match was broadcasted on live CBC television, but from what I can tell, no other online copies exist. This is a match that most have heard about, but if you weren't there, you probably haven't seen it.

Although the bitch slap occurred first, its interesting that they let the match continue even after punches were thrown. It seems like something that would have gotten the match stopped right away in an amateur sport.

It was on live television and for an Olympic spot. Stopping the match would have caused more problems than it solved.

That's what I had thought. Were any fines or such handed out afterwards or was it all forgotten about?

Well I'm not sure if Zoltan or Igali are on one another's Christmas card list, but in general, things went back to normal afterwards. Things like this happen in amateur wrestling from time to time. Usually happens in the same manner, working the head escalates and escalates until someone snaps.

I saw an orangutan in a singlet the other day. He was looking for you Canario.
