Watch: Canadian commentator's terrific clanger in Phelps race

As the world watched with amazement while Michael Phelps romped to victory in the 200m individual medley final, one broadcaster thought an all-time upset was brewing. With Phelps steadily pulling clear of American rival Ryan Lochte, CBC commentator Elliotte Friedman called the race as though the latter had instead stormed in front.
