The Austrian swimmer Markus Rogan was involved in a serious boxing match with four doormen in a Roman disco, and sustained heavy injuries in his face and on his leg. The swimmer wanted to celebrate his participation on the swim world cup in Rome.
There are different versions of the incident in the news. Rogan himself declared that he was attacked without a reason. Austrias Broadcasting Corporation “ORF” promulgated that Rogan was kicked out of the disco, but could not accept the decision of the doormen, return and started a boxing match with four doormen, in which he got the short straw.
The Austrian swimming association wants to verify the violent incident. Paul Schauer, who is its president, said that aggressions are refuseable.
