A Brawl In Track And Field
By: Mike Stone
I have seen fights in many sports. Obviously confrontations in the big four sports speak for themselves. We recently have seen tempers flare in NASCAR, but I can honestly say I have never seen a fight in Track and Field, until now. During Saturday’s Hispanic games in Brooklyn Mount Vernon High School sophomore Rai Benjamin inadvertently collided with a Thomas Jefferson runner and then was taken down by another Thomas Jefferson athlete after trying to get back into the race from the infield. And then a fight broke out. Click HERE for a link to the video which has some objectionable language (NSFW).
