20:35, Tuesday, 09 August, 2016
After Yuri van Gelder of the Netherlands made a successful Olympic debut by qualifying for the still rings final, he perhaps thought he deserved a chance to unwind after Saturday's preliminary round of competiton.
The Dutch Olympic Committee disagreed, and now van Gelder's Olympic experience is over.
33-year-old van Gelder left the Olympic Village on Saturday night and didn't return until Sunday, when he admitted to consuming alcohol. Both are against his team's code of conduct, and on Monday the Dutch Olympic Committe announced that he's been expelled from the Rio Games.
