Favorite Sport: "Cross country because it is simply one race with 800-meter runners, 1,600-meter runners and 3,200-meter runners all combined. There is this massive start line where all of the runners line up together and sprint down a stretch onto the course followed by a series of uphill and downhill runs and in the end there is only one winner."
