The 50 Biggest Fails in Summer Olympics History

13. An Unsuccessful Sit-In

Who: Byun Jong-Il
Olympics: Seoul 1988

South Korea’s Byun Jong-Il was disqualified for head-butting his opponent and decided to protest. So he didn’t leave the ring. Even after they turned off the lights in the arena. That is some serious commitment for a five-year-old, but it's truly impressive when a 19-year-old does it.
