Mo Farah Readies For The Olympic Double

The 10,000m gold medalist prepares to make history.

The 10,000m gold medalist prepares to make history.

Coach Alberto Salazar is not a man of many words, but when he speaks, people listen.

The former New York City and Boston Marathon winner says his athlete, Mo Farah, who won gold a few days ago in the 10,000 meters, is ready as ever to continue his winning streak to the 5,000.

“If anything, they are both physically and psychologically in better shape,” Salazar said of Farah and his training partner, the American, Galen Rupp. “The pressure is off. It’s not as though they don’t want to do well in the 5,000m, just that they’ve already got a great achievement under their belts, and they’re feeling fresher and more relaxed now than they were. I’m very happy with how they’re both doing.”

It’s been a really good Olympics for Salazar. After all, his two athletes nabbed the top two medals in an event usually dominated by Kenyans and Ethiopians.
