Profile: Or Sasson



  1. I read that El Shahaby was under pressure from his government to withdraw from the match. He probably would have been killed if he shook Sasson's hand.

  2. Yes, it was a douchebag move by Islam El Shehaby, as well as the Lebanese team refusing to share a bus with Israeli athletes (and other unsportsmanlike conduct by people from CERTAIN countries), but my Middle Eastern friends say that the athletes and their families would face some repercussions back home if they extended any sort of goodwill towards Israel. Cannot wait until people stop using the Olympics as a platform for political agendas...
