Mo Farah to race in 10,000 at Athletissima meeting

Publish date:

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Double Olympic champion Mo Farah is to run in the 5,000 meters at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne.

Organizers of the Athletissima meet on July 9 say it is the first time Olympic 5,000 and 10,000 gold medalist Farah will run at the track.

The British runner has not competed since the BBC aired allegations that his United States-based coach Alberto Salazar encouraged athletes to break anti-doping rules.

Farah was not implicated and Salazar published a detailed denial this week.

In Farah's last race in May, a 10,000 at the Prefontaine Classic where Salazar coaches at Eugene, Oregon, he ran a world-leading 26 minutes, 50.97 seconds.
