British Olympic Gold Medalist Greg Rutherford Takes Kids Lunch Money, Tells Them to Give Up on Dreams

Greg Rutherford won the gold medal in the long jump at the London Olympics. Rutherford was the second British man in history to win the gold in the long jump and he did it in his home country, so he has earned the right to do what he wants. Apparently, that includes tricking kids into a jumping contest for all their lunch money. Then, this amazing exchange:

Kid: “So do I have a career in long jump?”

Rutherford: “No. I mean, at the end of the day you think about how I am one in a hundred million. I don’t think you’re one in a hundred million. So if I was you, I’d give up on the dream right now.”

Greg Rutherford is awesome.
