Mo Farah to run in Euros for Great Britain


Double Olympic champion Mo Farah will lead Britain's challenge for victory at the European Athletics Team Championships in Gateshead on 22-23 June.

The UK Athletics head coach, Peter Eriksson, said: "I am delighted that Mo Farah has made himself available for Gateshead.

"To have a double Olympic champion lining up will be great for the team and the home crowd, and I expect Great Britain to be in the mix for the title."

Farah, 30, won the 5,000m at the inaugural Team Championships in Portugal in 2009 and defended his title a year later in Norway.
