RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Sometimes you just need to get naked angry.
Especially when you're Mongolian wrestling coach at the Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Two coaches did that Sunday, in protest of a challenge. Mongolian Mandakhnaran Ganzorig originally won the bronze medal match in the 65-kg bout. The judges then gave Uzbekastan's Ikhtiyor Navruzov a point, meaning Ganzorig was no longer the third-place champ.
Brazilian national police had to escort both Mongolia coaches off. The one put his pants back on. Both shirtless. And the crowd goes wild.— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) August 21, 2016
Brazilian police had to escort head coach Tserenbaatar Tsogtbayar and assistant coach Byambarenchin Bayaraa out of the arena, one of them had stripped down to his underwear. Both the coaches stood shirtless in front of a chanting crowd at Carioca Arena 2.
According to the Washington Post, Ganzorig won the match 7-6, before he was "docked a point for fleeing in the waning seconds." That point was given to Navruzov. The competitor who scores the last point in a tied wrestling match is declared the winner.
"The referees are no good," Bayaraa told USA TODAY. "There are 3 million Mongolian people, all waiting for a bronze medal. And now? No medal. Only (a few) Mongolian athletes come here."

"All of the stadium was behind us," Bayaraa said. "One hundred percent for Mongolia."
