TV Anchor Mistakes Mo Farah For Amateur Runner

26 February 2013

The Mirror:

WDSU’s LaTonya Norton asked Mo: “Now, haven’t you run before?”

Clearly perplexed, Mo replied: “Sorry?”

LaTonya went on: “Haven’t you run before? This isn’t your first time.”

Mo then replied simply: “No this is not my first time.”

It’s obvious that she is not used to talking without a teleprompter. Farah is so dumbstruck by the question he interprets it as “Haven’t you run a half-marathon before?”, ending the awkward pause in the conversation.
