Working my way up to inferior.

She may have meant to ask if he had run the New Orleans marathon before, but she did sound completely ignorant of who he is :facepalm:
Getting there...

Luckily Mo always comes across as a very modest likable chap - so he didn't lose his rag or casually drop in the fact that he's a double Olympic champion, World Champ, European Champ etc.!

But really not good prep from the news station at all!  One of the World's great athletes, you'd have thought someone might have done their research!
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

I was hoping he would drop in a casual reference to the medals.

Oh well, at least he was mistaken for (I assume) an amatuer runner - they usually mistake him for "a possible terrorist" in the US  ::-)
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!
