“I wished for just one medal as a junior. It has been a long journey but if you dream of something, have ambitions and are willing to work hard then you can get your dreams.”
Somalia-born Londoner Farah is now a nine-time global champion, moving him above Ethiopian great Kenenisa Bekele.
Mo said “Everyone works hard, but it is also about working smart, finding the things that will really make those marginal gains, assessing and diagnosing what areas can improve.
“What else makes Mo special is his race intelligence and ability to show up on the day and deliver the performance he is capable of. He has done that time and time again.”
“Mo does not believe he will be beaten. He sees no reason why he can’t be competitive in every race he competes in.”
“They had a plan – they wanted to take the sting out of me. But when I hit the front, I wasn’t letting anyone past me.”
