Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Last week, Moroccan Olympic boxer Hassan Saada was arrested in Rio after he allegedly sexually assaulted two waitresses working in the Olympic Village. Al Jazeera correspondent Gabriel Elizondo is now reporting that another Olympic boxer, Namibia’s Jonas Junius, has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a housekeeper in the Olympic Village.


Junius was Namibia’s flag bearer during the opening ceremonies, and was set to participate in his first fight at the Olympics this Thursday.
