Algerian cyclist zu Moster: "No camel race at the Olympics"

1:17 a.m.:

The Algerian cyclist Azzedine Lagab reacted to the racist derailment of the German cycling sports director Patrick Moster.

“Well, there's no camel race at the Olympics, that's why I go cycling.

At least I was there in Tokyo, ”Lagab wrote on Twitter.

In the Olympic individual time trial, Moster caused a scandal when he cheered Nikias Arndt from Cologne with racist words to catch up with Lagab, who was driving in front of him.

Moster had apologized for his choice of words, and there had been a clarifying discussion with the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB).

So far there have been no further consequences.

After the racism scandal surrounding BDR sports director Patrick Moster, professional cyclist Rick Zabel called for a tough crackdown. “Personally, I cannot understand that the BDR or DOSB did not take immediate consequences after this behavior,” the 27-year-old, who is not part of the Olympics, wrote on Instagram: “If we use the Olympic values ​​and anti-racism campaigns preach and want to represent it in a credible way, then such an incident must not be tolerated. "

Moster, sports director of the Association of German Cyclists, made racist comments during the Olympic time trial and called African starters “camel drivers”.

The cheers towards the German professional Nikias Arndt were clearly audible captured by the external microphones.

Moster subsequently apologized for his remarks.
