Yep.... he got totally flummoxed about how many qualified from each semi.... even though Paula Radcliffe had told him twice, he still said that the third would struggle to qualify as the first semi was much faster.. (first 5 in each semi + 2 fastest losers)

Like a lot of presenters/commentators nowadays.... more interested in how they are saying things, rather than what they are actually saying

Report Giuseppe August 6, 2021 2:19 AM BST
Kata is a Japanese word (型 or 形) meaning "form". It refers to a detailed choreographed pattern of martial arts movements made to be practised alone.

It can also be reviewed within groups and in unison when training. It is practised in Japanese martial arts as a way to memorize and perfect the movements being executed.
