London - The Judo Bronze medalist gave a blow to the arrogant bottle-thrower at the London Olympics 2012, before the commencement of the 100m men's final.
An Olympic spectator shown off craziness by throwing a bottle onto the track field a couple of seconds prior to 100m final started. This unexpected incident was caught up when the fastest runners across the globe lined up for the competition midst the eagerly awaiting fans on Sunday. The winning champion Usain Bolt was also geared up to start when this rude behavior was spotted out.
The Judo Champion, Edith Bosch, who won Bronze under the 70kg competition, was sitting beside the suspicious spectator and reacted emotionally to his unreasonable act by hitting him at the back. While interviewed in the NOS Dutch television, Edith had expressed,"I had seen the man walking around earlier and said to people around me that he was a peculiar bloke."
