World champion Sir Mo Farah could run out of time to qualify for Tokyo Olympics

Sir Mo Farah’s hopes of Olympic glory have been shredded after he was beaten over 10,000 metres.

He was more than 20 seconds off the qualifying time needed to book a seat to Tokyo.

He later said he was suffering from an ankle injury.


Farah could only clock 27 minutes and 50.54 seconds over the distance.

He needs a time of 27:28 to stand a chance of being a wild card choice to run.

Sir Mo said:

“The last 10 days haven’t been great.

“This is the first bit of track I’ve done.

“It would have been easy not to show but it was important I came out.

“I am four-times Olympic champion but that doesn’t mean nothing.

“You’ve got to go out there each race and give yourself a chance.

“I dug in deep but with 15 laps to go, you know my face, I was hurting hard.”

It’s ten years since Farah was beaten over 10,000 metres.
