Who Would Want This Athlete Representing Their Country?

27-year-old athlete Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad from France had just won gold in the European Championship’s 3000 metre steeplechase in Helsinki on Sunday. Guess what he did next?

a. Congratulate his opponents

b. Acknowledge the crowd.

c. Burst into tears of joy.

d. Walk over to the 14-year old championship mascot, smack a gift bag out of her hands and push her.

I’m afraid that if you answered a, b or c you are incorrect. It probably wouldn’t surprise you that it’s not the first time he has picked on a mascot.

Disgraceful behaviour! I hate to think how he would have acted had he lost the race.

I wouldn’t want him competing for my country.
