Sir Mo Farah has revealed that competing in the Marathon at 2020 Tokyo Olympics for team GB is a “possibility” providing that he is in good shape and capable of competing for a medal.
Farah, also revealed that his personal goal is to see if he can crack the 26-mile event in an exclusive interview with beIN SPORTS. “For 2018 the question is can Mo Farah crack a marathon?” joked the four-time Olympic gold medal winner ahead of taking part in the Doha Marathon on Friday.
“We’ll see that’s the goal really, can I run a decent marathon and if I can, what time can I run in that’s the question I am asking, and so many other people are asking” added Farah.
The British athlete who announced his intention to focus on the marathon in 2017 will be running for the first time in the Doha, and the run will be seen as vital preparation for the London Marathon which will take place on the 22nd of April.
Whilst looking to the future Farah revealed that a fourth Olympic Games appearance for team GB is a distinct possibility, having won gold in both the 5,000m & 10,000m track races at London 2012 and Rio 2016.
“Tokyo is possible. If I’m in great shape and I’m good enough to get a medal I will be there.”
