Salah Pasang Bendera, Timnas Korea Utara Ngamuk !



Laga pembuka cabang sepak bola wanita di Olimpiade 2012 diwarnai insiden memalukan setelah pihak penyelenggara salah memunculkan bendera dari tim Korea Utara.

Pertandingan di Grup G yang mempertemukan Korea Utara dan Kolombia, Rabu, 25 Juli 2012 sejatinya diselenggarakan pada pukul 19.45 malam waktu setempat. Namun pertandingan terpaksa mundur satu jam karena tim nasional Korea Utara melakukan protes dan nyaris walk out.

Mereka marah lantaran bendera yang dimunculkan pada layar lebar bukanlah bendera kebanggan mereka. Justru bendera negara tetangga mereka, Korea Selatan, yang dimunculkan di layar raksasa Stadion Hampden Park. Hubungan kedua negara memang memanas sejak Perang Korea berakhir pada 1953 silam.

Pihak penyelenggara mengakui kesalahannya tersebut. Mereka dengan cepat meminta maaf kepada anggota delegasi Korea Utara untuk kesalahan mereka itu.

Sebuah pernyataan yang dikeluarkan oleh penyelenggara Olimpiade London 2012 menyebutkan, �Jelas itu adalah kesalahan dan kami meminta maaf kepada tim dan Komite Olimpiade Nasional. Kami berupaya agar hal ini tidak terjadi lagi.�

Pada akhirnya pertandingan bisa kembali dilanjutkan dan Korea Utara yang menang 2-0 berkat dua gol Song-Hui Kim.
