To put it mildly, this seems like a really stupid things to do when you risk losing participation in a major event like the 2012 Olympics.
It is so stupid, that I may be tempted to believe there is something else going on here than an urgent need of toothpaste. Haaretz.com reports.
Israeli judoka Soso Palelashvili was arrested Friday on suspicion of stealing toothpaste from a grocery store in Dusseldorf, Germany.What's your opinion of this? Seems rather strange, right? Apparently a troublemaker, but this is strange.
Israeli judo officials immediately decided to ban Palelashvili from competing in the Dusseldorf Judo Grand Prix, putting a serious dent in his hopes of reaching the 2012 London Olympic Games.
