That was total BS, I would be so pissed.

I'm so pissed, I can't believe the crappy security. If I was that runner, I'd probabbly have kicked the crap out of the guy who tackled me.

UPDATE -

Apparently the guy who attacked the leader was a nutcase

He had a sign on his back that said "Israel - fullfilment of prophecy" ... as well as something else that couldn't be made out.

Yeah, and the resulting chaos made it the best race of the year.

here's mr. fruitcake grabbing the leader and pushing him out of the course into the crowd.



The story says that police got him off the runner, but from what I saw it looked like other spectators helped get the runner back to the race.

It was all Bush's fault!

If Shrub hadn't started his illegal war, the protestors wouldn't have to resort to such displays.

ABB!

Don't think the "protest" had anything to do with Bush or Iraq or anything like that

... the commentators did tell another story, about how one runner (possibly the leader, I'm not sure) got chased off the course by two large dogs in the 1904 St. Louis Olympics.

1:52ish....

The big dude in the blue short was headed in PDQ.

BTW, does Greece have a death penalty or can we just call him a terrorist?

Seriously, that was fucked up. I hope the asshole gets a major asswhippin as well. +1 on that!

Guess what?

Crazy Olympic guy is Crazy Britsh GP guy!

" Athens police sources identified the intruder as Cornelius Horan, who has been barred from practicing as a priest for the past decade. He once published a book called "A glorious new world very soon to come" that predicted the world was about to end."


" In July 2003, Horan, in a costume similar to Sunday's, ran onto the track at the British Grand Prix in the middle of the race and stayed there for more than 20 seconds, forcing Formula One racers traveling at more than 200 mph to swerve around him. He was carrying a sign that said: "Read the Bible — the Bible is always right.""

Former Priest, Father Neil Horan:


Front protest sign in Greece:

In case it doesn't work, it says "The second coming is near says the Bible. Grand Prix Priest."

Protest sign on his back:

"Grand Prix Priest. Israel fullfillment of prophecy says The Bible."

Priest getting pulled off by spectators:
