The Olympics buzzword

17 Aug

There’s been rather a gap in my blogs – I’ve had (both) kneecaps replaced and that has prevented me getting downstairs to my computer. It gave me a good excuse, though, to do nothing but lie on the bed and watch the Olympics coverage.

 The BBC’s team was excellent: the commentators were knowledgeable and didn’t create too many reasons for me to yell at the screen. The new athletics’ buzzword seems, however, to be “executed” – nobody swam, ran, rowed, jumped, cycled, performed, accomplished or achieved, they all executed. It didn’t seem to matter whether they were British, American, or whatever – they executed. Now, where did that come from?

      And the other one Chloe was, “the crowd is the third/fifth/ninth man/woman in the boat”
