Reporter to Olympic Gold Medalist Mo Farah: “Haven’t You Run Before?” (Video)

mo farah new orleans interview

You’d think that most people would recognize Mo Farah’s name after the British long distance runner captured gold on home soil in the 5000 and 10,000 meter competitions at the 2012 London Games.

And even if you didn’t recognize his name, you’d think anyone would be smart enough to assume that a man who not only wins a marathon, but also breaks the race record, would be quite the experienced long distance runner, right?

Well, not exactly.  You see, after Farah won the New Orleans half marathon in a record one hour 59 seconds, he took a moment to speak with WDSU anchor LaTonya Norto, who asked the two-time Olympic champion, “Haven’t You Run Before?”

No joke.  Check it out:

LaTonya may want to consider doing a little more research the next time she interviews anyone, because that was pitiful.
