After Mo's epic accomplishment, the former record-holder (Spaniard Fabian Roncero) claimed that since Mo Farah was not born in Europe, that he, the former-record holder, was the holder of the record for the fastest half marathon by a person born in Europe. Well, he may be. After all, Mo was born in Somalia and came to the UK when he was eight.
But the fact is, Mo is British.
When I last looked, Britain is part of Europe (both politically and geographically). So, Fabian, best become used to being the former record holder!
John Lovenberry, I'm awarding you a special prize for the Best Video Ever Made of the Leith Hill Half Marathon. It's spine tinglingly-excellent! Terrific music too. It's going in pride of place on the web site. Very nice work John - big pat on the back!
