Mo Farah CBE, the UKs greatest runner, ran past me today as I watched him go on to win bronze in the World Half Marathon Championships in Cardiff. I got one photo of him as he passed and thought about asking him to pause for a photo by my Inspire Tuition car, but with 2 miles to go it wasn’t the best time! The crowds burst into spontaneous applause because you could tell he was going through the pain barrier.
A double Olympic, European Athletics and World champion – and an all round nice guy, there isn’t a better role model for all our students. Good luck in Rio! Go Mo!
