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.

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