What would prompt the winner of a 3000 meter race to unleash fury on a mascot? That is the question that many are asking, after video of Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad is being seen around the world, swatting at the mascots hand, then shoving the mascot who just so happened to be a 14 year old girl.
The little girl was not harmed in the incident but the outlandish behavior was unexpected, and not something you would expect from a champion. What if any kind of punishment should the runner face for his actions against the mascot?
The runner who pushed the mascot is Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad of France.
