Farah Athlete, Olympic Gold Medalist 10,000m and 5,000m, World Champion


3


On a glorious night in August, Mo Farah became Britain’s favourite athlete when, having already won a gold medal in the 10,000m, a week later he won a second in the 5,000m. Over the past few years, the west Londoner, who came to Britain from Somalia at the age of eight, speaking very little English, has gone from being a good athlete who would beat most Europeans, and Americans, to a great athlete who, first at the 2011 World Athletics Championships in Daegu, South Korea and then at the London Olympics, took on and defeated the best the world had to offer. Mo is the UK’s finest ever distance runner. He holds the British record for all distances between 3,000m and 10,000m on the track and on the road. His major breakthrough on the senior stage came in 2006 when he won a silver medal in the 5,000m in the European Championships and later in the year won the European Cross Country Championships. London 2012, though, took him to another level. Representing athleticism at it’s finest, Mo has become an outstanding role model for many and possibly the greatest British Olympian yet.
