The Brazilian Confederation of Taekwondo not happy with Anderson Silva


The Brazilian Confederation of Taekwondo (CBTKD) is apparently not happy with Anderson Silva. Silva’s manager made an announcement that Silva would not be competing in the 2016 Olympics. Carlos Fernandes, the president of CBTKD, said they failed to inform him. In an interview with Globoe Esporte, Fernandez said, “We didn’t receive any contact from Anderson. In fact, to be honest, Anderson disappeared. We e-mailed him a few times, but he hasn’t responded, and we don’t know what’s going on. We never said he would participate in the Olympic Games, but that he would be on the tryouts. I think his manager committed a mistake about this. But he didn’t communicate to the federation directly. It’s a surprise for me. I think it would be more ethical if he said that directly to the federation because, when he said (he wanted to be in the Olympics), he did that by sending us a letter. But I can’t say this (decision about not trying out for the Olympics) came from him. I can say that we sent him three e-mails, and he didn’t respond. I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know if he did that because of the moment he was going through. But this is not a joke. It’s not a fake theater. The truth is: he doesn’t respond our e-mails. Silence implies consent, right? If he’s not responding us, he’s watching the clock ticking.”
