Poor Jelena Miksa. She and several other female fans of the Croatian soccer team traveled all the way to, uh, wherever the hell they’re playing the Euro 2012 Championship, saw the home team win a tough match 3-1 and then got a little carried away with their celebration. How carried away?
They lifted up their shirts. Then they took their shirts off completely. Then it appears they let another Croatian fan like a nipple. And it was, of course, all caught on camera. Great fun for those in attendance, but not apparently for the Croatian government which employs Ms. Miksa. They, apparently, would prefer for her to keep her top on during the tournament.
Don’t you just hate it when that happens? You’ve been dating a female jock for months and then she actually turns out to be a guy and he rapes and tortures you multiple times?
We have to admit that this is not the first “female” jock who turned out to be a guy story we’ve ever covered here on BadJocks. The most famous one dates from 2005 when Samukeliso Sithole, who ran track for Zimbabwe, was unmasked as a man. In her/his defense Sithole claimed that her family owed the town witch doctor some money and when they refused to pay he slapped a curse on the family which included–we’re not making this up!–adding a penis to the formerly female Samukeliso. She was able to convince a Zimbabwean judge to give her six months to pay off the debt and allow nature to take its course and then her penis-curse would fall off. Apparently that didn’t happen because she/he spent several years in jail after that.
Now comes the story of an Indian track star, Pinki Pramanik, who won won gold in the 4x400m relay in the 2006 Doha Asiad and a silver in the same event at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games. Pramanik currently works for the Eastern Railyway in India, or at least she/he did, until police where called after her/his lover claimed the jock not only raped and tortured her, but that she was actually a dude. Later reports claim that Pramanik bribed gender judges to get away with the ruse all these years and has so far refused to take a gender test which is apparently more complicated that just asking her/him to lift up his skirt.
In most countries, if a man ran out in the middle of a major sporting event in a skirt and lifted it up to reveal he wasn’t wearing any underwear, he’d not only get arrested, he’d likely get taken for a psychiatric evaluation.
But not in Australia.
Down under, you see, they have a slightly different sense of humor, so a Scotsman in a kilt at a rugby match is probably a welcome distraction. In this case it was Murray Greig, 22, who followed the Scotland team on a world tour that landed them in Australia for the first time in 30 years (you fellas gotta get out more.) The Scots won 9-6, which prompted young Mr. Greig to run out onto the field in his kilt, do a handstand (NO!) and then proudly lift it up as he raised a triumphant finger into the air. The result? Greig became a media start in Australia, where the local press dubbed him “Braveheart” and the ESPN channel used his antics to promote the tour broadcast.
How did things turn our for this streaker? According to Greig, “I was running around the pitch and security guards were chasing me. I managed to dodge them for about another 30 seconds before they caught up with me. The police asked me for ID but I didn’t have any, so they let me go.”
