VIDEO: French Athlete Flips Out And Shoves Teenage Mascot
French athlete Mekhissi-Benabbad has flipped out and shoved a teenage mascot after winning the 300m steeplechase.
We're use to seeing records breaking on the track but not this kind of record.
French athlete Mekhissi-Benabbad, has landed himself in trouble after flipping out and shoving a teenage mascot.
And it's more unbelievable when the 27 year-old had just won, yes WON, the 3000m steeplechase at the European championships in Helsinki.
It's not the first time the Frenchman has been reprimanded. In 2011 the athlete was involved in a fight with a fellow runner and in 2010 shoved another mascot.
We're thinking he should swap sports and compete in boxing instead???
Talk about landing yourself in deep water [see what we did there??!) ahead of the London games.

Of course, we're all about Mascots here at Mix 94.5. Thanks to our Grand Mascot race, which raises much needed funds for Telethon.
