Organisers were mortified to discover they'd downloaded the wrong song for the Kazakhstan anthem.

When Kazakh shooter Maria Dmitrienko stood on the pedestal she expected to hear the Kazakhstan national anthem being played, but due to an error behind the scenes the organisers somehow managed to play the spoof anthem from the end of Sacha Baron Cohen's movie 'Borat' instead.

As the loudspeakers blasted out such lyrics as "Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region" all Dmitrienko could do was sit it out until the song had finished playing. Her team later insisted the ceremony be repeated using the correct song.

"Speaking to Kazakh news agency Tengrinews, coach Anvar Yunusmetov said: 'Then Maria Dmitrienko's turn came."

I remember a baseball game where the Canadian flag was mistakenly displayed upside down by some idiot at a stadium in the US and the next game the American flag was treated likewise in Toronto....made quite a stir.

That's a pretty big goof. If it's a genuine mistake though I would hope people could laugh at it rather than feel a need to fire the person. That said though, I could understand why it would get someone fired.

wasnt something similar done to another country, except it was the death march that was played? gotta love how she was a good sport about it though. it was pretty rude all the same, to get a countrys' national anthem so exceptionally wrong.

Poor girl, a very proud moment in her life, maybe one of only a few, and some fool messes it up for her...

Poor girl, a very proud moment in her life, maybe one of only a few, and some fool messes it up for her... My thoughts exactly. It was probably only a careless mistake but she'll remember it everytime she tries to bask in the joy of that accomplishment.
