Sir Mohamed Muktar Jama “Mo” Farah gave a great start to the World Athletics Championships. In true ‘Mo’ style he won the 10,000 metres and therefore solidified himself as the greatest distance runner in history.
Despite being clipped twice from behind in the final lap. Farah still managed his trademark burst to speed away from Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei and Kenya’s Paul Tanui.
With 55,000 of his home fans roaring their support at the London Stadium. Mo sprinted his way to his 10th consecutive gold medal in a global track final.
Sir Mo Farah is the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history. In both the 5000 and 10,000 metres.
He is the most decorated athlete in British athletics history, with ten global titles. And was the first British athlete to win two gold medals at the same world championships, although Dame Kelly Holmes had achieved the feat at an Olympic Games.
