It is a video that lends itself to controversy. During the Tokyo Olympic Games marathon, Morhad Amdouni committed a suspicious act during the race.

As the athletes approached one of the refreshment points, the French dropped a whole day of bottles, one by one, before managing to grab the last bottle. Is this a clumsiness, which would be understandable after almost 1h30 of racing in the heat and humidity, or a stroke intended to disturb its competitors? The first reactions on social networks do not really give him the benefit of the doubt …

European champion in the 10,000 meters in 2018, Amdouni took 17th place in the race, in 2:14 “33. The best Frenchman was Nicolas Navarro (12th).
