He says he’s better than he was when he won two Olympic gold medals last summer.
To run at an elite level, you have to be confident.
British double-Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah isn’t lacking in that department. In fact, according to an article on All Africa.com, the Somali-born runner says that after reviewing the video of his impressive performances on the London track last summer, he’s even better.
This kind of bold statement give his rivals at the upcoming IAAF World Championships in Moscow a bit of a shake.
After all, with his impressive double, he is up there with distance-running legends Emil Zatopek and Lasse Viren.
And Farah isn’t just good at the classic distances, he’s shown that he can hold his own all the way down to the 1500m event. Earlier this summer he blazed through the race in 3:28.81 at the Diamond League meet in Monaco.
“I’ve never been this happy in my life,” Farah admits. “I’m enjoying running and doing what I do, instead of thinking that I have to do something.”
