Some Olympians get all the glory.
TVE, the channel in Spain that broadcasts the Olympics, referred to an innocent hole-in-one as a sexualized “glory hole” on TV. They probably didn’t know how it would translate.
Reddit user Ractrick shared a screenshot of the caption, which reads: “The first Olympic ‘glory hole’ in 112 years.”
The hole-in-one was made by Justin Rose of England, and it really was the first hole-in-one made at the Olympics in 112 years before Rio 2016, golf only appeared at the Olympics in 1900 and 1904.
Those tuning in to TVE expressed how hilarious they found the error on Twitter:
Congratulations to Justin Rose. We hope TVE’s translation doesn’t overshadow your feat.
