Only Hard Work not Drugs Has Put Me on Top

Posted by:

Distance running star Mo Farah has refuted suspicions that his amazing form is achieved with drugs. Hard work was the only thing that made him to step on the top of the podium at the London Olympics and Moscow worlds.

"I work hard at what I do," Farah told the Daily Telegraph from his altitude training base at the French Pyreanean town of Font-Romeu.

"If I didn't I wouldn't be up here in the mountains, spending more than six months a year away from my wife and kids. That's why it hurts."

"Look at my success, I didn't achieve it overnight. It has been the product of many years' struggle, and every year my times have shown gradual improvement," he told the Telegraph.

"I only wish that other countries had the same system. What we need, to get on top of this problem, is to apply the same rules worldwide. For my part, I know that Alberto is a great coach, and that for all my blood tests I work with Barry Fudge, the top physiologist at UK Athletics. I never go outside the system."

Farah will compete next this Sunday at Great North City run where he will face legendary Haile Gebraselassie and Kenenise Bekele in the half marathon race.
