How To Lose A Gold Medal (The Very Stupid Way)
« on: August 16, 2014, 04:35:00 AM »
Frenchman Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad is by far the best athlete in Europe in the 3000 meters steeplechase event and he was expected to clinch his third consecutive gold medal these days at the European Championships.

In fact, he was leading the race comfortably with 200 meters to go. That's when he decided to be arrogant and took his shirt off for the final meters of the race.

Gold medal? Nope, not any more, because the rules are clear: athletes are not allowed to take off their equipment before the end of the race. He was disqualified.

He will take part in the 1500 meters race on Sunday, hopefully he'll be able to keep his clothes on for that one.

Well, the rules are clear about this and he was deservingly disqualified.

UPDATE: He won the 1500m final today, this time he kept his clothes on and walked away with the gold medal :)

Here's what he said after the race: "Today I was not done yet. Any my only possible reaction after the disqualificaton: go back on the track and get this title - for my family, for those who are close to me, for my coach. I guess that today I wrote athletics history. There are not many athletes who are capable of doing what I just did. I came from joy to sadness after the disqualification and my reaction was the reaction of a champion. Winning today was the best thing I could do after the 3000m steeple. I had a lot of motivation, I ran with rage, I am very proud."

I don't know... he sounds very arrogant to me maybe because I saw him celebrating his win in 3000m steeple race.

Yes, he is very arrogant. Modesty is something he just can't understand.

What I need to be a fool to do this which is done Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad.After a lot of training and effort so that people do this really is for the reprehensible but it was his decision and now can non stop to run shirtless irrelevant dal on the track or on the street :)

Long been greater stupidity never seen!
