Mohammed Farah – Double Gold Medallist & European Champion

As he crossed the finish line, he sank to his knees and then prayed. It only seemed right to give thanks. It has been one of those perfect weeks for Mohammed Farah, double gold medallist & European champion.

Mohammed Farah’s triumph makes him only the fifth man in the 66-year history of the European Championships to achieve the 5,000m-10,000m double and makes him a favourite for Olympic glory in London 2012.

Mohammed arrived in London from his native war torn Somalia aged 8 and proves that with hard work, dedication and e’maan (faith) anything is possible.

Whilst not being the greatest fan of athletics, The Akh realises the work required to come out on top of your field, not once, but twice, is something special.

Well done Mohammed – The Akh salutes you!
