The Egyptian sumo team have been banned from competing at the Birmingham 2022 World Games for showing "poor sportsmanship".

The International Sumo Federation (ISF) has confirmed that Egyptian sumo wrestlers will play no further part in the tournament.

The decision centres around an incident during the men’s lightweight final between Egypt’s Abdelrahman Elsefy and Ukraine’s Demid Karachenko at the Boutwell Auditorium on Saturday (July 9).

According to the Daily Beast, Egyptian coach Ōsunaarashi Kintarō angrily remonstrated with officials after Elsefy was disqualified for unsportsmanlike conduct moments after beating Karachenko.

Karachenko was reportedly declared the winner only for the decision to be reversed after replays showed that his toes were outside the ring, resulting in a disqualification.

"In all sports, respect for the rules, officials, and fellow athletes is paramount and the referee’s decision is always final," a statement from the ISF read.

"During the men’s lightweight competition, an incident occurred concerning members of the Egyptian team who disagreed with the judge’s call.

"Such exhibitions of poor sportsmanship can’t be tolerated.

"For this reason, the Egyptian team has been banned from participation in remaining Sumo competition of The World Games 2022.

"The International Sumo Federation fully supports the International World Games’ principle of the fairness in sport."

Two titles were won in the sumo competition with Ivanna Berezovska of Ukraine and Japan’s Daiki Nakamura clinching the respective women’s and men’s open weight crowns.

Berezovska overcame Japan’s Hiyori Kon in the final, while an all-Ukrainian bronze medal match saw Svitlana Yaromka beat Karyna Kolesnik.
