Currently, Farah is 33 years old and has come off of yet another successful year. This year being an Olympic year, he headed into 2016 with a lot on the agenda. He headed to Rio in August to race against the world’s top athletes to prove to the world, yet again that he is the best.
The Rio Olympic Games was one that saw a lot of falls and dives on the track and Farah was not exempt from that. Mid-way through the 10,000m, he took a fall but recovered his race enough to outkick the rest of the pack taking first place in 27:05.17. He also came out on top in the 5,000m though he nearly took a fall again in the heats beforehand. He won in Rio running 13:03.30.
