The racist slippage of a German coach

A coach of the German cycling team slipped in the heat of the moment during the stopwatch for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“Catch up with the camel drivers. “ This is how Patrick Moster, a coach of the German cycling team, chose to motivate his rider Nikias Arndt. The latter was then behind two African runners, Azzedine Lagab (Algeria) and Amanuel Ghebreigzabhier (Eritrea), who are therefore the « chameliers » in question.

This sentence was heard live on German television. “Words fail me, reacted the ARD commentator. If I heard correctly, he said to me “take the camel drivers!” Something like that has no place in sport. It is absolutely lousy. Sorry, this is outrageous. “

Patrick Moster apologized after the race. “In the heat of the moment and with the pressure we have here right now, I missed my word choice. I am so sorry, I can only sincerely apologize. I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone. “
