British Sports Minister Helen Grant draws blank when quizzed about sport!
London: British Minister for Sports and Tourism Helen Grant was left embarrassed after a humiliating quiz where she failed to answer a single question about sports.
According to the Daily Star, despite claiming that sport is in her DNA there were some worrying gaps in Helen Grant`s knowledge.
Grant, MP for Maidstone, were asked about five sports questions after being interviewed by ITV Meridian and was unable to answer any of them, the report said.
The questions included who the current Wimbledon women`s champion was and who won the 2013 FA Cup , the report added.
The Conservative politician has defended herself and claims no one told her that the quiz was going to take place, the report further said.
She further added that if she had known, she would have done some proper revision, adding that her sports quiz knowledge may not be encyclopedic but she completely understands the positive impact that participating in sport has on people`s lives.
