(Or is it medalled?)
As in “The swimming star has medaled in three events so far.”
Because saying “The swimming star has won three medals so far” is apparently insufficiently descriptive for the “professional” communicators and the very amateurish analysts sitting alongside them who are broadcasting this year’s Olympic games.
The Curmudgeon has shared his dismay about verbification – the act of turning a noun into a verb – on a number of occasions (here, here, here, and here). Despite the passion with which he expresses his objection to these transgressions, they nevertheless continue.
So he will, too.
