Oussama Mellouli and Ghribi Habiba have made great achievements in London for Tunisia. Athlete Ghribi won silver in 3000m steeplechase, the first Olympic medal ever for a woman from Tunisia. Swimmer Mellouli won gold and bronze. But both now have to face a lot of hostility.

Radical Islamist groups in Tunisia called on social Internet sites on the government to revoke the citizenship Ghribi.

The 28-year old, the allegations have to dress modestly during their Olympic performance. Ghribi participated in London in the usual national dress of the athletes at the start.

Meanwhile, the extremist group "Ansar al Chariaa" was talking bad about Oussama Mellouli on facebook.

The open water swimmer who scooped more than 1500 m in freestyle and won bronze and Gold, had been drinking some juice before his race. "Ansar al Chariaa" criticized the 28-year-old had done this during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

what do you guys think about the ractions of their own people? i think they are being a bit too strict on them! i think you NEED to at least drink some fruit juice to get your strength together for an important race like that...!
