Athletics- Mo Farah chasing likely Olympic distance double

Posted by Admin On 10:31 AM

Farah won the 5,000 metres world title in Daegu in September and narrowly missed out on 10,000 gold at the championships when he was overtaken in the final immediately by Ethiopia's Ibrahim Jeilan.

There is a still a good chance (I will run both events) but I just have to stay injury-free, stay focused, keep doing what I'm doing, keep race, then my coach and I will decide when we get close to the Olympics,he told reporters on Wednesday.

I would like to do both but then who knows (coach) Alberto (Salazar). Alberto could say just do one and I could do one. I'll just wait to hear what the coach says.Since Farah moved his family to Oregon in the U.S. and teamed up with Coach Alberto Salazar he has happen to one of Britain's best hopes for Olympic glory.

Under three-times New York marathon winner Salazar, the 28-year-old set a European 10,000 record of 26 minutes 46.57 seconds and ended the season as the fastest man over 5,000. Farah said he planned to succeed to run in both events in London and the final decision would be made a few days before the Olympics start.

He dismissed the notion that opposing in both events at the July 27-Aug. 12 Games could potentially endanger his medal hopes. It's not a risk. It just depends on how you get well and when you come off the race,Farah told Reuters.It's going to be exhilarating but I don't know what the coach will say about it. I'm looking onward to it.
