Steeplechase Winner In Helsinki Gets Physical With A Mascot
We love athletics here at Balls.ie, but sadly we only cover it when there are stories about freak injuries or mascot attacks. We bring you the latter now. This is from Helsinki yesterday. French runner Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad won the steeplechase at the European Athletics Championship and was so delighted, he slapped and shoved this weird looking mascot, who’s apparently a 14-year-old child if you believe what you read on youtube. Bizarre.
