This is an audio call of Mo Farah’s last domestic race. This 3000 meters closed the 2017 Birmingham DL on 20 August. Mo Farah won his last race in front of a nearly packed stadium. Geoff Wightman called the race (and I provided some comments on the audio). The crowd came to see Mo Farah run his last race after his gold and silver in London.
The meet had some fine highlights: the men’s shot put, the mens’ high jump, a fantastic women’s 3000 meters and 1,500 meters, as well as a fantastic women’s 400 meters.
Mo Farah was here to see his British fans, and after the race, in the rain, many stayed to see Mo do his victory lap.
Mo Farah will race on Thursday, 24 August 2017 in Zurich as his last track race on the continent. RunBlogRun will be there.
