Rio: Crowd boos Egyptian Judoka for refusing to shake Israeli’s hand following defeat

Jpost Reports-

Judoka star Or Sasson defeated Egyptian opponent Islam el-Shehaby in the +100 kg division Friday afternoon at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Following his defeat, however, el-Shehaby refused to shake hands with the Israeli which led to booing from the crowd.

Sasson’s next opponent will be Poland’s Maciej Sarnacki.
Coming into Rio, Sasson, 25, had earned a pair of Silver medals at the European Judo Championships in 2015 and 2016.

Sasson had also placed 2nd earlier this year at the World Masters in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Sasson is ranked No. 5 overall in the world.
