Mo Farah can run but he can't hide his roots

A bit of an Olympic roll here. First Latuff takes bronze then double gold winner Mo Farah gets into a scrape with racist airport officialdom.

See this from Yahoo SPORTS:
Mo Farah celebrated his [Christmas] by getting taken for a possible terrorist.
The two-time gold medal winner for Great Britain at this past summer's games was traveling in Oregon and was questioned by U.S. Customs officials after they noticed his Somali ancestry.
Ah it's a roots thing or possibly a his name's Mohamed thing.
