A gold-medal winning athlete from Kazakhstan was forced to stand through a national anthem that insulted other countries and boasted of her nation's "clean prostitutes" when organizers at a shooting competition accidentally played a fake anthem from the comedy film "Borat."
Gld medalist Maria Dmitrienko never lets on that there's a problem and graciously poses for photos with the other medalists following the ceremony.
Dmitrienko won the 75 target event at the 10th Arab Shooting Championship in Kuwait on Thursday. She stood on the podium with the event's other medal winners and expected to hear "My Kazakhstan." Instead, she was greeted with Sascha Baron Cohen's mock anthem from his 2006 film.
Organizers apparently downloaded the anthem from the Internet by mistake.
Dmitrienko's Kazakh teammates were reportedly incensed with the mistake. They demanded another ceremony and an apology from organizers.
Cohen's film was banned in both Kazakhstan and Kuwait for its negative portrayal of the Asian country.

So, it happened in Kuwait, which means it was muslims in charge of the organizing. No wonder this happened! Animals can't think and muslims and niggers are about as low in the animal Kingdom as you can get!
