Sports press and ignorance
March 18, 2008 Comments Off on Sports press and ignorance
Bruno Claeys qualified for the semis in 100m backstroke this morning. Nearly *hunk* of the previous sports year, and still going strong in what he does best: swimming (some might argue he’s good at improvisation theatre though).
Sportwereld.be reports about it and places a picture of the start of what clearly is NOT a start of a backstroke race. How can a self-proclaimed sports website make such an obvious mistake?
De Morgen has at least the decency to print a picture of Bruno himself (even though it’s clearly from a different event).
Anyway, he’ll be glad about the semis, but probably even more about beating Stefan Maene’s 12 year old record on this event. Let’s hope Bruno can swim even faster in the semis! Go Bruno!f
