London:

Two water polo referees who disallowed what appeared to be a legitimate goal will not officiate another match at the Olympics.

Swimming governing body FINA says Boris Margeta of Slovenia and Radoslaw Koryzna of Poland will not be available for any of the remaining men's or women's matches at the London Games.

A late goal by Spain was disallowed in its 8-7 group loss to Croatia, despite the shot appearing to cross the goal line.

FINA maintained the result despite an official protest from Spain.
