"By 10:30am, we had a thrilling finish, David Weir in the pale blue top was desperately seeking a seventh London Marathon victory, to melody bitter disappointment of the Paralympics."

The above was a clip from the website: https://www.waazon.com/tv/26316598

It seems that "melody" doesn't makes sense here. Is "melody" also a verb?

Thanks!

Jason

It's "... to mellow the bitter disappointment ...".

It means that winning the London Marathon made him feel a bit better about not having done as well as he would have hoped at the Paralympics.
