AZIZULHASNI AWANG rode for Gaza at the Commonwealth Games. The Malaysian cyclist raced in the men's sprint wearing special gloves, with 'Save' over one knuckle and 'Gaza' over the other. Awang's fists featuring the message were held to cameras after the race, which took him through to the quarterfinals on Friday.
But making a stand for the people of Gaza could have consequences.
The Commonwealth Games Federation told The Associated Press it will "contact the Malaysian chef de mission to discuss the incident and take any action."
That action could range from a reprimand to Awang losing his accreditation.
