guy is also one of the nicest pro runners you will meet
Speaking of which. Here is a great article on how Flanagan and Knight have always looked up to Mo - and how he's always been nice back.
"Mo, when I started doing track I realized who the top dogs were at the senior level, and obviously Mo was up there. And I'm not going to lie, I pretty much fan-boyed Mo," Knight said laughing. "I was that kid, he added me back on Facebook and I was freaking out, and it took me about seven days to figure out a sentence to write to him."
"I was starstruck, I looked up to him my whole career," Flanagan said. "Ever since then, my whole family has been 'How's that Mo guy doing? We all think he's such a great guy." It's been so cool to follow him."
