Aaron Cook Barred From 2012 Olympic Team

The BOA stood by their decision to not have Aaron Cook on the Olympic squad. Muhammad Lutalo will be replacing Aaron Cook's previous position.

Critics still do not agree with the BOA's choice and show that Lutallo ranks 50 places below Cook. However, some say that the new scoring system, which is also disputed, will favour Lutalo's fighting style in the upcoming Olympics over Aaron Cook's. 

However, others point out that Aaron Cook has defeated 15 of the competitors from other countries that will be competing this year and has experience dealing with their style and technique.

The WTF and other major organizations have had high-ranking members express distaste at the BOA's decision.
