Article source: Athletics
Olympic 5000 and 10,000m gold medallist Mo Farah, will have a new test as he is going to face Haile Gebrselassie in next month's Bupa Great North Run half marathon in the United Kingdom. 
 
A running legend and former world record holder in half marathon ( 58:55) and marathon (2.03.59) Haile Gebrselassie will join Mo in this race. It is going to be a new challenge for Farah as he will try to break 60 min barrier. Mo's best time from last year in this event is  1:00:23. If  Farah makes the race under 60 minutes, he will be the first British to do so.
 
"I'm sure the head-to-head between them will be something special. Who knows with Farah expected to eventually move up to the Marathon he could in a few years' time even see him talked about as being an equal of Gebrselassie."  athletes manager told organizers.
 
A 29-year-old Mo Farah already has proven his strength in longer distances when he won European cross country title back in 2006.
