Sven Kramer, Olympic Speed Skating Champion, Ain't Having That

New, comments

The Netherlands' Sven Kramer won the 5000m gold in speed skating on Saturday, something you would have known from watching the race, which the NBC reporter on hand clearly did. Still, for video purposes, they have each person say their name and nationality even though in Kramer's case it's literally written on his jacket.


Can a Dutchman pull off a perfectly executed "Hell Naw!" Answer below.


As you'll see, Sven Kramer clearly pulls off a well-spat "Hell naw!" for the NBC reporter and manages to be polite for the remainder of the interview. If there were a gold medal for properly dealing with media inanities, Kramer would have it hanging around his neck right now.
