Let’s Start The Day With Two French Runners Brawling Seconds After Crossing The Finish Line

Mehdi Baala and Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad are teammates on the French track and field team. But from the picture above and the video to follow, it sure doesn’t seem like it.

The fisticuffs started how these things usually start, with someone trying to console someone else. Unfortunately, Baala didn’t want to be consoled and decided that it would be a good idea to head-butt Benabbad. And of course, Benabbad didn’t think that was such a good idea and starting swinging at Baala.

And from there, as the kids say, it was on.

Baala, 32, said: “People like that don’t have a their place in sport. But saying that, it’s very rare to see a*******s like him.”

He went on to say: “I wanted to break him in two.”

Come on, Mehdi. That’s not how teammates are supposed to act.
