Watch Bodybuilder Flip Out, Assault Judge at Competition

Giannis Magkos lost it after placing second in competition

Say hello to Giannis Magkos, the angriest (and maybe scariest) bodybuilder in the world.

During the 2016 IFBB Diamond Cup in Greece over the weekend, Magkos became the talk of the town when he got into a physical altercation with a judge. As the story goes, Magkos won his 100-kilogram division but placed second overall in the competition, and proceeded to completely lose it having already placed second at the event twice before. First he took his anger out on one of the judges – Armando Marquez, apparently a well-respected judge in the bodybuilding world – by slapping him in the face. Then, according to Australia’s Yahoo7 News, Magos flipped a table and pulled out his penis for everyone to see.

Here’s a closer look at the incident, minus the last revealing detail:

Magkos hasn’s been suspended yet for his actions, but the IFBB Disciplinary Commission posted on Facebook that they have opened a file for “the life suspension of the athlete Ioannis Magkos, from Greece due to his disrespectful and aggressive behavior towards IFBB officials, athletes and the general public at the recent competition.” Sites such as Evolution of Bodybuilding also called for him to be suspended for life
