    One of the Russian women gymnasts is called Komova.
    This tickled me when she was doing the vault.

    There's one from another country which I can't remember, but has a Muslim name, but really long one

    oh, and Sparkle McKnight

    and there's another one like Deja Vu, but not Deja Vu, but I think he just doesn't use all his name

    I switched the stream of the 200m womens breast-stroke half way through and thought the commentators were doing some ambush marketing. It went something like:
    "Sony in the lead, closely followed by Suzuki, Sony's going to win... it's Sony for gold, Suzuki silver..."

    I only realised afterwards the winner was an american girl, actually called Soni and Suzuki was a Japanese girl in 2nd.

    One man in the American showjumping team and an apt description of most of them.
     
  18. The Octagon

    The Octagon Stop......Hammertime

    Wasn't there a Jack Bauer (possibly New Zealand)?
     
  19. The Boy

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    Cyclist. Apparently this cracks the Italian cycle commentators up.

    Unfortunately the person in charge of the numbers had no sense of humour. During the TT he was wearing the number 25.

    Not a silly name but this still seemed like the right thread for a homophobic website filter failure story:
