Country profiles on the BBC Sport website


We have received complaints about the BBC Sport website from people who felt that the country profiles on the Olympics page for the Israeli and Palestinian teams were inaccurate.

BBC Response


The Olympics page on the BBC Sport website provides extensive information on the London 2012 games, including the profiles of all the teams taking part.


Due to an error which was made at the time the information was added onto the website, incorrect details and mistakes appeared on the Israeli and Palestinian team pages.  This has since been rectified in line with BBC policy.

The BBC as an impartial broadcaster remains committed to accuracy and we regret if anyone was offended by this.
