Sir Mo Farah To Compete At Vitality London 10k

Sir Mo Farah has announced that he will compete in the 2022 Vitality London 10,000 on Monday, May 2nd.

Farah, the most decorated athlete in British track and field history, hasn’t competed since a broken foot ended his chances of competing in last year’s Tokyo Olympic Games and adding to his four Olympic gold medals, which he won in London 2012 and Rio 2016.

Now recovered from injury, the 38-year-old is now preparing for the 2022 season, with the Vitality London 10,000 – an event he has won on seven occasions – his first confirmed race of the year.

Farah said: “I’m really looking forward to getting out there and racing again at an event that I really love. I’ve been working hard to get back into shape following my injury last summer and I’ve got a few more months of hard training ahead of me, so it’s good to have a target like the Vitality London 10,000 to work towards.

“I have great memories of the event. I have won it seven times and racing in central London is something you can never get bored of. The atmosphere among the thousands of participants is always fantastic and I can’t wait to be part of it again.”
