Katya Bachrouche of Libya competes in the women’s 800m Freestyle heats

This is the comment that showed underneath Katya’s picture on the official London Olympics website. [Link]

Why Libya? It doesn’t even sound the same and you can’t confuse our Lebanese flag with the Libyan one. The only thing we have in common is Tripoli. That doesn’t justify CNN’s gaffe last year though. [Link]

Someone owes the Lebanese team an apology.

Update: I submitted a complaint to complaints@enquiries.london2012.com.

Thank you Fadi!
