As a senior, Mo Farah ran the 5000 m in 13 minutes 9.40 seconds to become the second-fastest runner in the world, behind only Dave Moorcroft, in 2006. It was during that same year that he took second at the European Championships in Gothenburg and third at the 2006 European Cross Country Championships in San Giorgio su Legnano, Italy, that he earned a silver medal. After that, he trained in Kenya and Ethiopia, where he went on to win European titles in the 5000-meter and 10,000-meter races in 2010. In 2011, he relocated to Portland, Oregon, to train under the guidance of American coach Alberto Salazar.

Mo Farah had a very successful year in 2011, and he will look back on it fondly. At the European Indoor Championships, he took home the gold medal in the 3000 m. He then went on to win the silver medal in the 10,000 m and then the gold medal in the 5000 m at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics in Daegu, South Korea, becoming the first British man to do so over either distance at a World Championships. In 2012, he was poised to reach new heights in his professional life. With a time of 27:30.42, he became the first British athlete to win an Olympic gold medal in the 10,000 meters at the London 2012 Olympics. As part of his Olympic gold medal-winning performance, he won the 5000 m in 13:41.66, giving him a long-distance double in London in 2012.

During the Herculis meeting in Monaco in 2013, Mo Farah ran a time of 3:28.81 to break the European 1500 m record, setting a new mark. Steve Cram’s 28-year-old British record, as well as Fermin Cacho’s 16-year-old European record, were effectively broken by him with this accomplishment. Additionally, he took first place in the 10,000 meters and the 5000 meters at the World Championships in Moscow that year. The athlete had been scheduled to compete at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, but he was forced to withdraw due to illness.

His time of 8:03.4 seconds at the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix in 2015 broke Kenenisa Bekele’s previous world record for the indoor two-mile run. At the age of 32, he went on to win the long-distance gold medal and the gold medal in the relay at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics. In 2016, he continued his incredible form by winning gold medals in the 10,000 meters and 5000-meter races at the Rio Olympics. He did so to become only the second athlete in modern Olympic Games history, following Lasse Virén, to successfully defend both the 5000-meter and the 10,000-meter titles.
