Vancouver Olympic Champion Sven Kramer to NBC Reporter: 'Are you stupid?'

In the below clip, a reporter asks Kramer, "If you can say your name and your country and what you just won here." Kramer quickly interjects: "Are you stupid? Hell no I'm not going to do that."
Speaking later in a Dutch interview, Kramer explains: "Come on, this is ridiculous. You've just become Olympic gold medal winner. She was there when it happened and then you have to sum up your whole biography, etc. She's crazy." (Note: this translation is taken from the text in the video below.)

I love it.

Well done, Sven... He had just won the gold medal for heaven's sake!!!

That NBC interviewer should have done her research or introduced him herself to the viewer...

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Vancouver Olympic Champion Sven Kramer to NBC Reporter: 'Are you stupid?'

Am I the only one who feels like this was just a big misunderstanding ? She probably just wanted a bit of him saying : "I'm Sven Kramer, Olympic champion on the 5000", that kinda thing. And he took it to mean : "Ok so who am I interviewing here ?"

She should've been clearer and he shouldn't have been so short-tempered

Yeah I think you're right. She knew who he was. Why would she interview a random dutch skater?

Uhm, to be introduced by the presenter? It's pretty freakin stupid and condescending to ask an Olympic gold medal winner to tell his name, his country, and what he just won.

My first thought too. You see that type of thing in promos all the time.

Agree with your last point too.

Either way, no use for rude people.
