Mo Farah’s career

Farah is widely regarded as one of the most successful men’s track runners in history. He has ten global championship gold medals, four Olympic titles and six world titles, making him the most successful British track and field athlete in modern Olympic history. Farah won double gold medals in the 5,000m and 10,000m at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, becoming just the second athlete, after Lasse Virén, to win both titles at two consecutive Olympics. He also won the “distance double” at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships in Athletics and defended his title in two major global competitions, a feat known as a “quadruple double”.

Farah is known for his tactical running style and quick sprint finishes, which have been described as dynamic. He has primarily competed in the 5000m and 10000m, but he has also competed in everything from the 1500m to the marathon. In 2017, after winning his final track race, the 2017 IAAF Diamond League 5,000m final, Farah announced his intention to switch entirely to road racing. He won the 2018 Chicago Marathon with a time of 2:05:11, a European record.

Farah holds a number of records, including the European record in the 10,000m and two miles, the British record in the 5,000m, the British indoor record in the 3,000m, and is the current holder of the hour and indoor world record holders for the two miles.

Farah’s running career has been the recipient of several awards and honors. He was the first British athlete to win two gold medals at the same World Championships, and won five gold medals at the European Athletics Championships, making him the most successful athlete in individual events in the championships’ history.

Mo Farah has won the European Sportsman of the Year and British Athletics Writers’ Association British Sportsman of the Year awards more than any other athlete – three and six respectively.

In 2017, he won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award. In recognition of his contribution to athletics, Farah was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2013 and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at the 2017 New Year’s Order.
