Mo Farah says winning London Marathon would be ‘greatest career achievement’

London, Apr 12: British Olympic track champion Mo Farah has said that winning the London Marathon would top everything that he has achieved in his impressive track career, including his Olympic and World Championship golds.

The double Olympic and world champion, who is bidding to become the first home winner of the men’s race since Eamonn Martin in 1993, is targeting the British record of 2hr 7min 13sec set 29 years ago by Steve Jones.

According to the Mirror, Farah, who had earlier declared that he would not be competing if he did not think he could win, has said that to come away with a win would be the greatest thing that he has ever achieved.

The report mentioned that Farah has never run 26.2 miles at race pace and has only covered the distance once in training, adding that he ran a half-marathon last month and ended up unconscious in a wheelchair.

Farah, who views this race as a voyage into the unknown, said that it is going to be harder than London 2012, the hardest race of his life. (ANI)
