Football: South Korean footballer in political protest 'will get his Olympic medal'
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - An official familiar with the decision says a South Korea footballer who displayed a political banner after a match at the London Olympics will receive his bronze medal.
The official says the International Olympic Committee (IOC) executive board will only issue a warning to Park Jong Woo for his actions after his team's 2-0 victory over Japan.
The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the ruling hadn't been announced.
The IOC withheld Park's medal after the Aug 10 incident, pending a disciplinary hearing, which was held on Monday in Lausanne.
