At the Olympic Games in Rio, one judo competitor gave a lesson in poor sportsmanship:
Egyptian judo fighter Islam El Shehaby was loudly booed at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics after his first-round loss to Israel’s fifth-ranked Or Sasson, when El Shehaby refused to shake Sasson’s hand, in a major breach of judo etiquette.

Not exactly in the spirit of the Games.
What an unbelievable coward. https://t.co/sc2y01c5He

The cynic in me sees this as a clever move to avoid "loser" tag, and instead become a "national hero." https://t.co/Alq6Bihwt5
