MO FARAH is Proud of his Roots and Builds Athletics Academy in Somaliland Republic
1. A focused and self-conscious athlete
At a very young age Mo Farah went to live in a strange country where he did not know well its language and culture. By ups and downs he tried to do his best so that he can achieve his goal. He understood very clearly that success in this life is not guaranteed. It is partly dependent on the extent to which he takes himself seriously. Thanks to the helping hand and the guidance he received from several prominent British people resulted a significant transformation of his life and made him self-conscious and the person he is today.
The talents and ability of Mo Farah were no secret to the people around him. His former PE teacher (Alan Watkinson) discovered and realised that he had a particular talent for distance running, and mentored him.
Mr. Watkinson was not only one to champion Mo Farah. When he was 17, Paula Radcliffe paid for his driving lessons so that he could travel to training nights. London Marathon race director David Bedford also helped — the London Marathon Charitable Trust funded Mo Farah’s education at St Mary’ University College, Twickenham, and David Bedford introduced Mo Farah to Alberto Salazar, the unique American coach who is the one who has laid the foundation of Mo Farah’s amazing recent progress.
