Farah spurred by home crowd
Mo Farah has called on the home crowd to continue their terrific support for his 5,000m final on Saturday night.
The Great Britain long-distance runner looked formidable in the 10,000m final last weekend, as he romped to victory through the roars of the home crowd. Farah is now looking to make it a double gold medal success at the London Games when he runs in the 5,000m final tonight. The 29-year-old was delighted with the reaction he got from the home crowd last Saturday and is hoping they will make the difference once again in his weaker event. Farah said: "Hopefully, I will be able to do something again. I want to do well for the crowd and whatever I do I will give 100 per cent." "If it comes down to the last 10 or 15 metres, and it's really tight in the race, and everyone's shouting your name, it gives you that bit more of a boost, so hopefully it will help."
