Sudanese Judoka Avoids Israeli Handing Arse Back to Him on Olympics Platter

Last week, Algerian judoka Fethi Nourine disgraced himself after refusing to fight Israeli Tohar Butbul. Well actually, he was set to face Sudan’s Mohamed Abdalrasool in his first bout, with a possible second round showdown against Butbul. Nourine claimed he did it to support the so-called “Palestinian cause.”

Now Abdalrasool has also withdrawn before facing Butbul, and the haters assume it is for the same reason as Nourine.

I call BS. Abdalrasool is the world’s 469th-ranked judoka in his weight class, while Butbul is seventh.


Methinks Abdalrasool knew he was not going to emerge victorious so he took this stance to be the “hero.”

All he has shown is what a coward he truly is.
