Have you noticed that bottle thrown just before the 100m start?

The athletes were getting ready for the start at 100 meters final, at London Olympics 2012. Seconds before the gun shot, an object came flying behind the athletes. When i first saw it i wasn’t sure what was that, until i saw the race again in slow motion. Some clever guy thrown a bottle behind the athletes, probably trying to make them have fault start. Sebastian Coe has described as getting “poetic justice” when he was then smacked by a judo champion.

Holland’s world judo champion Edith Bosch swung into action after seeing the man lob the bottle just seconds before the race started.

She claimed on Twitter that she had “beaten” the person who had thrown the bottle.

She said: “A drunken spectator threw a bottle onto the track! I HAVE BEATEN HIM …. unbelievable.”

Speaking to NOS TV, Bosch said: “I had seen the man walking around earlier and said to people around me that he was a peculiar bloke.

“Then he threw that bottle and in my emotion I hit him on the back with the flat of my hand. Then he was scooped up by the security.

“However, he did make me miss the final, and I am very sad about that. I just cannot understand how someone can do something like that.”

    The guy who threw it was drunk. The Dutch bronze medal winner in Judo kicked his butt and put him in a submission hold until the cops got there… The Dutch bronze medalist is a girl. Oh how I wish they would sell the video from his cell camera in jail. What a punk! Justice is served.
