Moment Black Girl Was Snubbed During Medal Presentation In Ireland

One trending video showing a moment when a female sports official decided to skip a black girl, who was among medalists at a Irish tournament,

The video, which was said to have been taken in March 2022, shows a lineup of young gymnasts awaiting their awards, with the little black girl excitedly waiting for her medal before being overlooked as her white peers were each given an award.

After reemerged footage of the incident went viral this week, Gymnastics Ireland issued a public apology for the incident, after the girl’s parents claimed the alleged snub was motivated by racism.

The sporting body claimed the issue had been settled in August but the young girl’s mother has denied this, claiming the family had not received a genuine apology.
