Gotta Love the French


From one fellow Frenchman to another: "Don't be a Jerk!" Can't believe this runner pushed the poor 15 year old female mascot: French Fry. Where was this type of aggression in WWII?

Crazy that this made it onto Good Morning America, but how is there no mention of the fact that this is the same guy that PUNCHED HIS OWN TEAMMATE IN THE FACE following a race last year? They finished the race and got into an altercation. Off the top of my head it was either at Monaco or Rome Diamond League meet. When your last name has the word "bad" in it, you're probably in for some trouble...

RM> That incident took place at the European Championships in Barcelona in 2010.

I was in Helsinki to witness and this jerk was boo'ed (too little I think). He was about to loose the race to a Spanish guy but unfortunately he stumbled at the last steeple.

ha, i forgot about that one! ryan was talking about the benabbad swing at baala that got them both "banned" last summer after the 1500m at monaco. not that he does this a lot or anything.

good for the sport to have a french stick of fury to liven things up, or did he find how to get bad publicity?

either way, somebody needs a hug.

Reminds me of Without Limits:

"We came all the way here from EUGENE OREGON to race against Vaatainen and Viren, not a bunch of pussies in Helsinki!"
