ESPN Roundtable - Harald Frey

Post by Colter_Nuanez » Fri Mar 01, 2019 1:47 pm

This winter, we have added a new segment that's a collaboration between ESPN and Skyline Sports. It's called the ESPN Roundtable, a long-form 30-minute interview with various sports figures from around Montana. This week, we featured Montana State point guard Harald Frey. Give it a listen.

That was really interesting. As noted in the interview, his English is flawless. It was a surprise that language was a little bit of an issue for him when he got here. Digesting technical/academic information in a foreign language must be challenging-even if he was pretty fluent. Does he speak any other languages besides English and Norwegian?

I've always thought the pure measure of being able to truly speak a language is the ability to understand humor. As you can see, Harald was hilarious in this interview, telling jokes, hamming it up. Really impressive to be able to conduct a 30-minute interview in a second language.

Great stuff here. A lot of interesting things to talk about. ESPN should put this out on a wider area broadcast. I found myself thinking I’d enjoy this even if it was not our player. 1 of 3 Norwegian's playing D-1, international ball, his father. Very engaging.
