The Olympic Spirit Is All About Kicking Officials In The Face

Whatever you do, don't piss off Cuban tae kwon do Olympian Angel Valodia Matos because, as the photo from AP stringer Matt Dunham shows, he'll probably kick you in the face. After all, when he found himself disqualified in the bronze metal match in men's over 80K tae kwon do match for taking too long due to an injury, he didn't take it like a man. Well, he did take it like a man if that man is Steven Seagal. Matos decided to resolve his differences with match referee Chakir Chelbat by kicking the Swedish official square in the face.

Ow, my nose!

Kazakhstan's Arman Chilmanov won the bronze medal and will definitely have to work twice as hard to defend himself from the Jew's claws now. Matos and his coach earned lifetime ban from the World Taekwondo Federation. As it turns out, they kind of look down on pushing judges, pushing and kicking officials, spitting on the mat, and then later not apologizing for it.
