The action of these three people has violated the Olympic Convention. They are no longer competing in a fair and open situation. The Olympic Committee has always insisted on stopping the action immediately when it discovers it. Because the convention stipulates that no Olympic participants can place bets during the Olympics, other athletes should report to the organizing committee immediately if they discover the behavior.

The International Olympic Committee accused the delegation of failing to effectively inform the athletes of the applicable rules or not. For example, the ban on betting matters they did Not previously known.
