Double Olympic/World Champion

In 2013 Mo Farah completed a dream ‘double-double,’ joining Kenenisa Bekele as the only athletes to hold the Olympic and World 5000 and 10000 metres titles at the same time. He confirmed his legendary status by passing the Holy Trinity of British Athletics, Sebastian Coe, Steve Ovett and Steve Cram, breaking Cram’s 28 year – old British record for 1500 metres with 3:28.81! He already holds the British records for 5000 metres (12:53.11) and 10000 metres (26:46.57).
