A special mention to Dutch judo bronze Edith Bosch who, enraged by a lout throwing a bottle onto the track behind the 100m men\’s finalists punched out the offender after which he was thrown out of the stadium and arrested:
\”Some drunk in front of me throws a bottle onto the track!! I hit him … Unbelievable,\” she said, adding the hashtags \”angry\” and \”norespect\”.
She revealed in her next tweet that she had missed the race in the commotion: \”Dammit … and I missed the 100m! What a BEEP\”.This is one aspect of \”the new civility\” which I feel we should encourage.
A little more punching of louts would improve society.
