French athlete Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad has gained track and field infamy for all the wrong reasons, in the lead-up to the London Olympics.

Rather than appearing happy about his 8.33.23-minute victory, the Algerian-born athlete walked over to the championship’s mascot Appy, which was being worn by a 14-year-old girl, and smacked a gift bag out of her hands and shoved her with both hands.
