Olympic Scrotum Punching

French Bball Player

Goes NUTS on Spain

Talk about an Olympic low blow ... some dude on the French basketball team just delivered a closed-fist scrotum punch to a Spanish player ... sending the guy crumbling to the floor in agonizing pain.

The ball-punisher is France's Nic Batum ... who obliterated Juan Carlos Navarro's bean bag in the 4th quarter of their quarterfinal matchup ... in an effort to intentionally foul the guy.  Batum was NOT ejected from the game.

Seems testicle attacks are all the rage at the Olympics this year -- just yesterday, Team USA member Carmelo Anthony took a fist to the no-no zone from a guy on the Argentina squad.

2:00 PM PT -- Batum has apologized for gonad battery ... tweeting, "I want to apologize for my stupid act at the end, I showed a bad image of France and myself, Congrats to team Spain."

I really feel sorry for the Organizer's for this Olympic run in England. They must be just cringing with the terrible officiating, bannings and the behaviour of these Athletes. I'd be more interested to find out if their Home countries are going to do anything about these little incidents.

Like him or not, unsportsmanlike conduct "below the belt" is just that: "below the belt"!
Throw that *ss-hat out of the country!

Maybe he thought he was in the handball competition. Let's ask Harvey, he's an expert in this field.

Hey now, that is not how most countries work. We like to keep our scrotum punching on comedy shows, not in our sports. Tsk Tsk

Scrotum punch? Really?
So did he say "Pardon me sir, please move your balls aside so I may punch you in the scrotum." ??
