Memo

Memo to all sports commentators - learn some Chinese pronunciation (at the very least, sometime before the Beijing Olympics, but sooner would be nice (tomorrow, say)).
It's rather painful to hear Luo Xuejuan rendered as "Loo-oh zway jan" or thereabouts through the whole of a swimming race.

Meanwhile, BBC - saying you'll show 5 minutes of fencing highlights at 4:25, then having it turn up at 4:55 instead and half of it being from The Dream , is pretty pathetic.

(Edit: Not that there's anything wrong with The Dream , and I wouldn't mind seeing all of it over here, but seeing a decent amount of fencing would be even better)
