"he has good english skills and has spent a lot of time overseas and understands the foreign mindset. "

maybe it has something to do with the fact that his mother is Romanian

Congratulations to Koji Alexander Murofushi. Koji is one of my favorite track and field athlete. He's one hunk of a man and a gifted, sexy, handsome elite hammer thrower. Thanks to his mother, Murofushi speaks Hungarian fluently.

I have huge respect for big Murofushi-san, my favourite Japanese athlete. Not only is he an Olympic champion - and an unbroken 20-consecutive-year hammer-throw national champ - the man is very articulate in the media. Excellent appointment!
