London 2017 presser: Mo Farah after the 10,000m (before he got his stitches)


Fact: Mo Farah is at the top of his game. That the entire teams of Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia did all in their power to make that 10,000 meters pretty much twenty-five laps of live hell is a complement to Mr. Farah.

Consider this: First half of the race was run in 13:33, second half in 13:16! Last mile was run in 4:04, 800 meters in 1:57 and that last 400 meters, where Mo Farah was clipped at least twice, and then, spiked himself, was run in 55.6!

After the race, Mo Farah had three stitches, ice on his legs and saw the physio. He answered five questions and then, apologized and headed out to get fixed before the 5000 meters!

A good quick video on an amazing race!
