Colombia Will not Win Spelling Medal at ‘Word’ Games


Now, this is awkward.

According to Colombian (not Columbian) newspaper El Tiempo, the country’s organizing body of this year’s World Games has recalled the 1,221 gold, silver and bronze medals that were supposed to be handed to athletes at this year’s competition.

The reason? A not-so-tiny misprint…

It’s “World” not “Word”… Just like “It’s Colombia, not Columbia.”
