Did you see what the Italian woman who won the K1 500 Kayak silver is called? Her name is Josefa Idem. I had seen the title on La Gazzetta “Idem argento splendente” and kept referring to the previous headline to see who had won the first, and what. Compicated reasoning for a hungover Saturday morning but I thought I should point out that if an athlete has such a confusing surname then the newspaper writers should avoid putting her name so confoundingly in the titles.
Of course this episode reminded me of a Terry Pratchett quote in the book parodying the Greek philosophers (don’t ask for names at this time but I would go for Pyramids) … and the quote goes something like “Ibid you already know”.
