Olympic Basketball Player Punches Opponent Right in the ‘Medals’
We’ll all remember the 2012 London Games for having some of the best moments in Olympic history. How can we forget the star-studded opening with Mr. Bean? Oh, right, there were games too.
Michael Phelps becomes the most decorated Olympian ever and French basketball player Nicolas Batum punches Spain’s Juan Carlos in the balls during a game. Wait, what?
The announcers use of “unsportsmanlike foul” seems to be an understatement. Shouldn’t athletes in the Olympics be better behaved? Naturally, with Carlos curled in the fetal position and cupping his bruised medals, his team forms a mob and goes after Batum.
