Kazakhstan's Athletes Have Asked People To Stop Yelling "Borat" Quotes at Them
So far, Kazakhstan is having a pretty good Olympics. They're actually in the top 10 of the medal count with three golds. But they're having some issues outside of their events. People won't stop yelling "Borat" quotes at them.
The head of their Olympic committee is Aslan Amanov. He says, "In the [Olympic] Village there is absolutely no problem. The sports world knows our good side. It is when we go outside it is very disappointing. Of course nobody takes it seriously but there are some things you cannot tolerate, things about your mother and sister. No matter how democratic you are, you will never tolerate the words that 'Borat' was saying about us."
