London: British star Mo Farah could make a surprise return to the track to defend his 10,000m title at the World Championships.
Farah, a four-time Olympic gold medal winner, ended his track career in 2017 to concentrate on marathon running. But the 35-year-old has hinted he may be ready for a comeback in Doha later this year.
Farah will run in the Big Half marathon in London on Sunday as part of his build-up to April’s London Marathon. Farah has confirmed that if he wins the London Marathon, then competing at the World Championships in the 10,000m is a genuine possibility.
“It all depends on the result in London. Having seen my fellow athletes, who I’ve competed against in the past, and watching the European Indoor Championships on TV, I was thinking ‘Oh man! I want to get back out there’,” Farah said on Friday.
