Sex assault claim

The Age
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

A weightlifter from Papua New Guinea has denied an allegation of sexual assault that led to him being detained by police in Glasgow but still allowed to compete in the Commonwealth Games on Sunday.

Toua Udia, 22, who lifted in the men's 77kg category at the Clyde Auditorium on Sunday afternoon, reportedly spent the night in a cell after being charged over an incident involving another man in a toilet at a Tesco store near the athletes' village.

He was due to front court on Friday after being released on bail and said he would plead his innocence.

"It was an accident," Udia said after lifting 125kg in the snatch and 163kg in the clean and jerk for a combined 288kg on Sunday.
