Mo Farah won the men’s 5,000m at the Rio Olympics but there were initially three disqualifications that caused controversy.
This story appeared in our first-ever issue in 2008. Back then, Mo Ahmed was a high school cross-country champion with a PB in the 5K of 14:56. He has since taken that down to 13:01.75 to set the Canadian record. He represents Canada in the 5,000m on the track on Saturday night.
The drama continues to unfold on the track at the Rio Olympic Games. In the men’s 5,000m heats today, another fall happened which almost resulted in Mo Farah going down.
The men’s 10,000m final is slated for Saturday evening in Rio and Mo Farah looks to repeat. However, watch out for a different Mo: Mo Ahmed.
