South African Athlete Severely Beaten in Alleged Racial Attack

The country's 5000 metre record holder Thabang Mosiako, 22, was beaten by a group of men after he defended a cashier who was allegedly sworn at. Mosiako was set to travel to Algeria for the African Champs in March, but may not be able to do so.
