Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

With the aid of their COVID-19 masks, the U.S. guys’s fencing group staged an obvious demonstration on the Olympic phase versus their own colleague, who has actually been implicated of sexual misbehavior of females.

Alen Hadzic, an alternate, rejects the accusations by 3 female fencers. On Friday, July 30, throughout intros for the group épée competitors at the Tokyo Olympics, 3 of his U.S. fencing colleagues—Jake Hoyle, Curtis McDowald and Yeisser Ramirez—stood near him using pink masks while he used a black one.

Fencing champ Ibtihaj Muhammad, who won a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics and ended up being the very first Muslim lady to represent the United States at the Olympic Games while using a hijab, openly praised the guys’s choice. “#TeamUSA men’s epee team wore pink masks for their opening match at the Olympics as a show of support for sexual assault victims. Kudos to the team for taking a stand,” she tweeted. “#BelieveWomen.”

Ramirez reposted her tweet on his Instagram Story. His colleagues and U.S.A. Fencing have not commented.
