World Athletics: one to watch – Mo Farah

British athletes at the IAAF World Championships: 10,000m runner Mo Farah, Sunday 28 August


Just how good is Britain’s Mo Farah, who runs in the men’s 10,000m at 11:30am? “Mo Farah is the fastest distance runner in the world,” Channel 4’s Iwan Thomas tells RT. 


“He’s got everything needed to become a really great athlete. I’ve been following him since he was ten. In full flight, he’s majestic, as though it’s no effort. He comes to Daegu as a favourite. I can’t wait.” 

For more excitement, it’s the men’s 100m final at 12:45pm.
