I saw your match, the last 2 rounds & they were clearly yours. Biasness at its extreme. Pls don't leave this matter or other Indian players might suffer the same in future.— Gavin (@gavinx123) July 30, 2021
You have a point and this surely confused (intended confusion) the judge giving points - red now blue. We need a probe in this. It was a clear win for India.— ShwetaBhanotMehrotra (@shwetabmehrotra) July 30, 2021
It's a fact that in a fight of equal power, red color looks more dominant. It has got the longest wavelength. I don't understand why Olympics is unfair towards Indians, first the unfair draws, now this.— 𝒟𝑒𝒷𝒶𝓈𝓂𝒾𝓉𝒶 𝑅𝑜𝓎 𝒮𝒾𝓃𝑔𝒽𝒶 (@Debasmita_R_S) July 30, 2021
