WATCH: Egyptian Judoka Refuses To Shake Hands With Israeli Opponent…Again


Three years after Egyptian judoka Islam El Shehaby refused to shake hands with Israeli Or Sasson after losing, another Egyptian judoka – Mohamed Abdelaal – has pulled the same shtick after losing to Israel’s Sagi Muki.

Balk like an Egyptian.

Poor Sagi is used to bad sportsmanship from some Arab and Muslim opponents. At least he went on to win the gold.

As for Abdelaal, here’s hoping the International Judo Federation acts this time and expels his sorry ass.
