~The four-time Olympic Champion hints at retirement when asked about the Paris 2024 Olympics, saying he’d like to support young athletes at grassroots level ~
Sir Mo Farah says he’d like to ‘give back’ to his sport and that the Paris Olympics in 2024 is ‘too far down the line’.
The multiple Olympic, world and European champion missed out on the Tokyo Olympics this year after failing to make the 10,000m Olympic qualifying mark at the British Athletics Championships. He then fractured his foot, which put paid to the rest of his summer race season.
When RW spoke to Farah at a press event this week he said that his recovery is ‘going well’ but he has a long road ahead to get back to his previous form. ‘I’m starting from zero,’ he said. ‘It’s not like this is what I was and I’m automatically just up here.
