The IJSBA has determined that Franky Zapata has engaged in unprofessional, unsportsmanlike, and unnaceptable conduct while participating in the 2005 IJSBA World Finals. In addition to penalties levied at the event, the following shall be the enforced, effective immediately:

The IJSBA would like to assure the public that the IJSBA is committed to creating a positive environment for spectators and participants. Actions that interfere with this goal will not be condoned or tolerated. Any questions may be directed to me at:
