Bolt Considers To Race Farah in 600m

Posted by: Watch Athletics

Double OIympic Champion in 5000 and 10000m  Mo Farah has made a challenge to the 6 time Olympic champion in 100, 200, and 4x100m Usain Bolt – to race him at either 600 or 800 metres for charity.

"He's got his charity foundation, I've got the Mo Farah Foundation," Said Farah.

"It would be great to do a distance where people, proper athletics fans, vote in on what distance they think is most suitable (600 or 800m).

"Are you up for that? Come on, you've got to do it. Let's get it on."

Previously Bolt has turned down David Rudisha's challenge to race in 400m, but a race between him and Farah is probably more likely to happen though.

Bolt in a response interview said he would consider to race Mo Farah, but he would prefer the shorter distance.

"It sounds like fun. It would be tough, but for charity, 600 would be better for me." concluded Bolt.
