Irish Rowers Give The Best Olympic Interview Ever

You may or may not have been consumed by the goings on in Rio for the Olympic games, but even if you aren't you need to give this glorious interview a watch.

Brothers Paul and Gary O'Donovan had just won silver in the men's lightweight double sculls when they were hoisted up in front of the cameras of Ireland's national broadcaster RTE.

Clearly exhausted from their sporting expenditure and overwhelmed by their new found hero status, the duo began the interview by asking 'what's the craic?' before bumbling through the rest of it in a barely decipherable Irish brogue.

Paul went on to give a detailed description of his urine sample and in another popular interview elsewhere, claimed they didn't know what time their race was due to start.


Winning an Olympic silver medal is one thing, but the hearts of their nation is something else.

Good craic, boys.
