This French hammer thrower is the most important Bigot on the Olympic video games


The Olympics are an opportunity to get to know athletes we wouldn’t in any other case. Their lives, their tales, generally their unlucky final names that get misplaced in translation. That’s a really particular challenge I do know, however it was all too actual for Quentin Bigot this weekend.

Bigot goes to be competing within the finals of the hammer throw on Saturday.

This entire state of affairs makes me bear in mind watching the USA males’s basketball workforce on the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. There was an analogous state of affairs with a final identify that was … shall we embrace, misplaced in translation just a little. An ahead, born in Slovenia, enjoying for Italy. His identify was …

Fučka instantly turned a crowd favourite from the second he was launched. I watched as Gary Payton and Antonio McDyess virtually died laughing on the courtroom once they noticed his jersey.

Each time he touched the ball the raucous, predominantly Australian crowd would yell “NICE ONE FUCKA!” “GET ‘EM YOU FUCKA!” to the delight of everybody in attendance, and I presume the confusion of Gregor Fučka, who puzzled why he had some many new followers that day.

Good recollections. Anyway, better of luck to Quentin Bigot within the finals.
