According to My TV Bangladesh, Jahid Hasan Shuvo, a Bangladeshi bodybuilder, threw and kicked his award several times after getting second place in a competition.

Among them was Aaj Tak, which reported that Jahid Hasan Shuvo tossed his prize after coming second in the National Bodybuilding Championship. In addition, while speaking to the media, he alleged that the match was fixed. (Media report 1, Media report 2) Sharing a longer video of the incident, Shuvo claimed that this was a slap on the face of the federation of thieves. This video is longer than the viral footage in which the bodybuilder ultimately ran out of the venue while shouting.
Speaking to Bangladeshi sports channel ‘Sports 24’ on December 25, he issued an apology for his behaviour. To sum it up, the man seen kicking a prize offstage in this viral video is actually a bodybuilder from Bangladesh, who did so in protest of being awarded second place in the competition. Footage of the incident was falsely shared on Indian social media with a caste angle.
