Kuwait event plays Borat parody as Kazakhstan national anthem

A Kuwait sporting event allowed a spoof Kazakhstan national anthem to be played to honour a gold medal win for the country. The country's shooting team were left stunned after a parodied version of their national anthem was allowed through the PA system as Maria Dmitrienko stood atop the gold medal podium. Team coach Anvar Yunusmetov told Kazakh news agency Tengrinews "they played a completely different anthem, offensive to Kazakhstan." The footage shows an emotionless Dmitrienko, though she does force a tiny smile at the end. The spoof song from the film Borat praises Kazakhstan's superior potassium exports and says they have the cleanest prostitutes in the region, with the exception of Turkmenistan. The film is banned in Kazakhstan.
