Farah in shape for Daegu
Mo Farah feels in the best shape of his career as he targets World Championship glory this year.
The Londoner smashed the British and European 10,000 metres record with a superb performance in a Diamond League meeting in Eugene, Oregon, just over a week ago.
The 28-year-old appears to be reaping the benefits of a decision to base himself in the United States and work with coach Alberto Salazar ahead of the 2012 London Olympics.
His next major commitments are Aviva Grand Prix meetings in Birmingham and London before the World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, which start in August.
Farah said: "I don't do many 10Ks. I knew I could run a personal best but didn't know I was going to run that fast.
"It gave me a lot of confidence going into a major championship.
"Running a fast time is a good thing, but it is all about major championships and getting close to a medal.
"It tells you that you can mix it with the best of the guys.
"I have never been this confident in my life.
