At the Olympics, Mo Farah proved he can run away from anyone in the world. See who else he can out run!

At the recent Olympic Games in London, Great Britain’s Mo Farah wowed his hometown crowd on two occasions, running away from deep fields in both the 10,000-meter and 5,000-meter finals to walk away from Olympic Stadium with two gold medals.

While it became obvious that the Brit possesses the wheels to out run his closest pursuers from Kenya, Ethiopia and everywhere in between, what the tens of thousands of people in the stands might not realize is that Mo has been turning on the afterburners recently to get away from a variety of other medal-hungry pursuers who have been trying to chase him down and take away his new neck jewelry.

For photographic proof of the various chasers Mo has run away from since capturing gold at the Games, check out this fun tumblr page at mofarahrunningawayfromthings.tumblr.com.
