Athletics: Results down to hard work, not drugs, Farah insists
LONDON (AFP) - British distance running star Mo Farah has refuted suspicions that his startling form is down to drugs, saying that it was solely hard work that got him atop the podiums at the London Olympics and Moscow world championships.
"I work hard at what I do," he told the Daily Telegraph from his altitude training base at the French Pyreanean town of Font-Romeu.
"If I didn't, I wouldn't be up here in the mountains, spending more than six months a year away from my wife and kids. That's why it hurts."
Farah backed up his 5,000m-10,000m double at the London Games with a similar feat at last month's world championships in the Russian capital to ensure his place among the greatest distance runners.
