Peter Sagal's guest contestant on Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is Hannah Kearney, Olympic Gold Medalist in hot dog skiing, officially referred to as "freestyle." One of the leading mogul skiers in the event, she's won two Olympic medals in addition to her 43 World Cup medals. Because her sport is so...well, offbeat, the panelists jump in with far more bewildered questions than usual -- and because she's so self-effacing and charming, the interview is especially funny. In particular, keep an ear open for their discussion about the Olympic Village. Also, when they get to the answer to the first question, for the first time that I can recall, the two incorrect answers are actually real quotes and host Sagal gives their gobsmacking attribution. All in all, this is a hoot.
