CBC Calls Entire Race Confusing Ryan Lochte For Michael Phelps [Update]

Michael Phelps just won his 22nd gold medal by dominating the field—which included his rival and countryman Ryan Lochte—in the 200 individual medley. Viewers in Canada, though, were led to believe Lochte led the race and that Phelps had fallen short. “Finally, he’s going to do it! Ryan Lochte is going to beat Michael Phelps in this event!”

What a pity!

Update (10:38 p.m.):



Timothy Burke is formerly Deadspin's Video Director.
