’A Canadian broadcaster has made the first slip-up of the Olympic Games, mistakenly referring to Australian flag bearer Patty Mills as a woman."
“I think they had two women carry the flag. Cate Campbell the swimmer and Patty Mills the basketball player,” the Canadian broadcaster said.'
I guess they assumed ‘Patty’ was a woman’s name?
Those Canadians are completely duped, I’m not surprised 😂
That’s a pretty understandable mistake, if all I had was a name on a sheet pf paper I’d probably make the same assumption.
Hopefully the broadcaster apologises for the error.
