Mo Farah looks set to focus solely on the 10,000 metres at the World Championships in Daegu next month.

Farah has won over 3,000m, 5,000m, 10,000m and on his debut in the half-marathon during a winning streak in 2011 that he extended to nine races by cruising to victory in the 5,000m at the UK Trials and Championships on Sunday.

But the 28-year-old revealed he would not attempt to repeat his long-distance double at last year's European Championships when he competes in South Korea. "I'm definitely going to concentrate on one event and put all my eggs in one basket and that is the 10k," said Farah, whose upturn in fortunes has come since moving to Portland, Oregon, to be coached by Alberto Salazar.
