Mo Farah, CBE

Athlete

Double Olympic gold medallist, Mo Farah, was sent to London aged eight amid the chaos of the Somali Civil War. Torn apart from his twin brother and other family members who stayed in Somalia, Farah

suffered from the language and cultural barrier that hit him when he arrived. Nurtured by his PE teacher who recognised his obvious athletic talent, Farah began competing in junior athletic events. As a teenager, Farah became the first British man to run 5,000m in under 13 minutes, and at the 2012 Olympic Games he became the first Briton to win a gold medal in the 10,000m. Farah is the only athlete to win the 5k/10k double on home soil.
