Mo Farah has the chance to make himself a legend in Great British athletics at this summer’s Olympics games. He goes into both the 5000m and 10000m races with a strong chance of picking up the gold medal.
Many would say that the 10000m is his stronger event. However in the 2011World Championships he took the silver in that event and went on to win the gold in the 5000, so can he dominate both races this year?
Farah will be looking to show he is a one of the best around after a poor Olympics in Beijing 2008. This year he is stronger and better than ever.
In the 10000m, he is the favourite to take the gold with odds of 6/4 with Sportingbet.
The 29-year-old has won this event in European Championships and will feel now is the time to do it on the biggest stage.
It will be tough for Farah though as the Ethiopians have dominated this event in the Olympics over the last few years, winning four straight gold medals.
As for the 5000m, the latest betting offer for the Englishman sees him at 2/1 to take the gold.
As mentioned, he is the current World Champion so looks to be in great shape to continue his success in this event.
Farah will know that there will be plenty of competition and finishing on top will not come easily. However, with the support of the home crowd he could produce something really special.
The Somalia born athlete has the ability to really show the world that he is one of the best long distance runners of all time.
Should he be at his best, them a gold medal in both events and making himself a true Olympic great is possible.
If you think that Mo Farah can do this, you can back him at 5/1 with Blue Square.
