Farah gunning for 5th straight London 10,000 victory

Published Add your comment

Mo Farah will look to take a 5th straight victory in the London 10,000 road race as a key part of his preparations for the World Championships later this year.

Farah has won every race since it was launched back in 2008, and organisers say the double Olympic gold medalist is focused on winning the race - and using it as a stepping stone towards his bid for gold in Moscow in August.

The 30-year-old has set two British records in his four appearances at the event so far.

Farah's main opposition in the race, which takes place on May 27, should be his training partner Scott Overall, who came home in 3rd last year.

The run will be Farah's first major appearance at a British race since the London marathon in April.

The Somalian-born athlete ran half the race before dropping out as arranged - however he was criticised in the build-up to the race after it was revealed he would be paid £425,000 for taking part in the 2013 and 2014 events.
