Patrick Moster, the director of German cycling federation sports, has received widespread backlash for using a racist slut during the men’s time trial. Moster was in charge of the German cycling team at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
Germany, Algeria and Eritrea were participating countries in the men’s time trial. Moster was heard using the racial slur to encourage one of the cyclists, Nikias Arndt to catch up to the African cyclists. The term he used was very derogatory and he earned himself a suspension following the event.
Since the show was being broadcasted live nationwide, the remark became a hot topic of discussion back at his home, Germany.
Moster had issued an apology, later but his remark had violated the Olympic values and he had to be sent home, opined the President of the German Olympic Committee, Alfons Hörmann.
