What in the world??

[Warning: Language, Violence]

More from the NY Post:

The punch occurred at the Tohopekaliga Tiger Invitational in Kissimmee on Saturday.

According to Canadian Running Magazine, the incident happened during a 1,600-meter race.

TMZ cites witnesses as saying that the athlete who threw the punch was not involved in the race. He was reportedly standing on the track, and the runner in first place โ€” who ultimately got punched โ€” told him to move out of the way.

The black athlete didn't move out of the way though. Instead, on the next lap of the 1,600-meter race, he apparently stood further in the runner's lane and the runner pushed him over as he ran past.

In apparent retaliation, the athlete in the black chased him down and socked him in the head.

Absolutely unacceptable.

Police were reportedly called over the incident, but no one knows if charges were filed.

Then again, if we're not going to be angry about men winning women's sports, I'm not sure why we'd be upset about athletes punching each other!
