Hackers wrote “Shame on you” and “Give back the gold” on the Asian Taekwondo Union‘s website, amid accusations that China and South Korea were behind the decision to disqualify the Taiwanese athlete, the Central News Agency said.
The hackers also put an image of a hand with its middle finger raised on top of the flags of the two countries, along with a message stating that “we are all Taiwanese”, it reported.
On Friday the website’s homepage bore a message in Korean saying it was temporarily down “because of excessive traffic”.
Taiwan is in uproar over the fate of Yang Shu-chun, a gold medal hopeful, who was disqualified on Wednesday from the Asian Games in Guangzhou, southern China, for using extra sensors in her socks.
Television footage showed a man burning a South Korean paper flag in a Taipei street Thursday. The removal of Yang, Taiwan’s top taekwondo fighter, was especially painful for the diplomatically isolated island which sees the Korean martial art as a rare chance to shine on the world stage.
