Sports fans are delighted when they get to see something unusual during a game. This usually happens when rivals try their best to show off to the audience while competing in the field.
Nowadays, sports people, especially the famous ones, try always to be nice to maintain a good image. They want their fans to accept and support them all the time, so they don’t want to do anything that will ruin their reputation.
A lot of people, especially kids, look up to Olympians, as they always look clean and they seem so dedicated to their sport.
Similarly, football players have to deal with interviews and press conferences most of the time, so they’re trained to present themselves as supportive members of their team.
In short, the fun in sports has been eliminated because of the fact that they have to be likeable to the media and their fans.
But Not in Indonesia
Luckily, in Indonesia, real sports still exists. If you happen to watch an Indonesian motorbike racing tournament, you will realise that the thrill of competition and revenge is still around the corner.
The footage came from the East Java Series V Championship Road Race. It’s a short track motorcycle race held in the Indonesian city of Bondowoso.
In the video, the riders are doing circuits when suddenly one contestant, identifies as Dimas, intentionally bumps into rival named Hasan. He hit him with his elbow, causing the other to crash into the metal fencing, even hitting an audience.
When You Fall, Stand Up
The crowd went wild as everybody witnessed the foul play in the course of the race. Of course, you would expect the downed rider to get his revenge, but this wasn’t what anyone expected.
Instead of immediately running after the offender, Hasan calmly gets back on his feet and walks back to the centre of the track. While carrying his helmet with one hand, he picked up a sandbag and patiently waited for Dimas to arrive for the next lap.
Upon reaching near Hasan, Dimas what was going to happen, so he attempted to escape from his karma. But Hasan was able to slip the sandbag directly under his front wheel, throwing Dimas off near the same fence he landed on.
The crowd cheered as Hasan got his sweet but fierce revenge on Dimas.

On the other hand, the intense competition caused both of the riders to be declared disqualified from the tournament.
