CBC Broadcaster Calls Entire Race Confusing Michael Phelps For Ryan Lochte – VIDEO
Michael Phelps captured the 22nd gold medal of his fabulous career on Thursday, crushing the field, which included Ryan Lochte, in the 200 meter individual medley.
Viewers in Canada may have thought differently while viewing however, as the CBC announcer had Phelps and Lochte confused, and had the latter as the winner of the race.
“Finally, he’s going to do it! Ryan Lochte is going to beat Michael Phelps in this event!”
This a mistake that I'm sure he feels horrible about, and one that will live with him throughout his career.
