Farah confirms London reappearance
07 Jul 2015 15:03
Mo Farah has confirmed he will return to the former Olympic Stadium in London to take part in the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games next month.
It will be his first competitive appearance in Britain since the BBC broadcast doping allegations about his coach Alberto Salazar and team-mate Galen Rupp.
Salazar and Rupp both strenuously deny the allegations made against them and there is no suggestion that Farah has done anything wrong.
Farah, who withdrew from a scheduled appearance at the Diamond League meeting in Birmingham last month shortly after the allegations were broadcast, will compete in the 3,000 metres in London.
The race will form part of his preparations for the World Championships in Beijing next month, in which he is aiming to defend his 5,000m and 10,000m titles.
Farah said: "The race will be exciting on the Friday night at the Olympic Stadium. My training is going well and it is just what I need to prepare more for the IAAF World Championships.
