Biography

http://www.mofarah.com

Mo Farah is a three-time European champion, successfully defending his 5000m title in Helsinki this year, and reigning 5000m world champion – he just missed out on a long distance double at the 2011 worlds, also claiming silver in the 10,000m.

Farah has transformed his career since moving to the USA, where he is coached by Alberto Salazar and trains with best friend Galen Rupp.

In 2011 he set a new British record in both long distance events and he also won his half marathon debut in New York.

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Farah won gold in both the 5,000m and 10,000m.
