Mo Farah’s 10,000m splits

14 Aug 2016

Mo Farah has made history. He becomes the sixth man in history to win two Olympic 10,000m titles, joining the pantheon of distance greats: Nurmi, Zatopek, Viren, Gebrselassie and Bekele. Now he’s setting his sights on the bigger prize of completing the 10,000m/5000m twice.

Can anyone stop him? It seems to be the question baffling east African runners. For all the discussion of making it a fast race, a fartlek session, kicking far out, teaming up or hoping he falls (which still didn’t make a difference here), it was the same Mo here dominating throughout. What have they got for the 5000m or are they simply out of ideas?
