Indigenous boxer Damien Hooper has apologised after breaching Olympic rules for wearing a T-shirt featuring the Aboriginal flag into his first London fight.
“He was very remorseful afterwards in regards to the interest it has caused. He was not aware of the damage or the potential damage that could cause by wearing the shirt.
“He apologised to the team and he vowed not to wear the shirt again.”
It is understood the flag shirt breaches rule 50 of the Olympic charter.
The rule bans demonstrations or political, religious or racial propaganda at any Olympic sites, venues or other areas.

Disgusted by this - to deny and label the very real Aboriginal history of Australia as ‘propaganda’.. smh.

The Olympic organization is a disgrace
