Lost in translation

I had so many problems with the English translator. At one point the interviewer asked how I help Carl Lewis with his prayer and meditation, but the translator said, “Now tell us something about how you help Ben Johnson with his prayer and meditation.”

At another point when I said “pray and meditate,” the translator said “play and meditate” in German. Kailash told me afterwards.
