Borat’s version of Kazakhstan national anthem mistakenly played at sporting ceremony

The parody version of the Kazakh national anthem from the movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan was played after the country’s shooting team took gold at a championship in Kuwait.
   Medallist Maria Dmitrienko showed little emotion during the medal ceremony but smiled at the end.
   After pointing out the parody was offensive, the organizers re-ran the ceremony with the correct anthem.
   The 2006 Sacha Baron Cohen film portrays Kazakhs as racist and inbred.
   The organizers of the championships said that the parody was downloaded from the internet in error.
   Coach Anvar Yunusmetov told Kazakh news agency Tengrinews that the organizers also got the Serbian national anthem wrong.
