It is so sad to see athletes resulting to violence before or after a competition; however, during the race is grounds for permanent banning from competition. In most of the cases I've seen it's always a runner from another country attacking the furious kickers of Ethiopia.
What could possibly enrage another runner so much that you attack a fellow competitor who haven't spiked you during a race?

Are you kidding me???? That was the most entertaining thing I have seen in a very long time. This is EXACTLY what our sport needs! I think we should enourage more fighting and violence in the sport just like they do in the NHL and NASCAR. People come to see the fights and crashes and they know it, so why should we not do the same? I guarantee there would be a huge surge in viewership of world XC, olympic finals etc. if people thought they could see some blows being exchanged mid race. Not even kidding at all, that was effin awesome, im still smilling!
