Farah wins New Orleans Half

Mo Farah and Gebre Gebremariam

Mo Farah and Gebre Gebremariam


Britain’s Mo Farah edged out Ethiopian Gebre Gebremariam in a dramatic finish to win the New Orleans half-marathon.

The pair left the rest of the field trailing, and it was Farah who grabbed the glory as a sprint finish gave him victory in one hour and one minute.

Farah, 29, also beat Gebremariam on his half-marathon debut in New York two years ago.

Scott Overall finished seventh in 1:04:52, while Helen Clitheroe was fourth in the women’s race in 1:11:47.

Farah plans to run half of this year’s London Marathon before taking on the full distance in 2014.

However, the major target for the Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m champion in 2013 is to repeat his London 2012 success at August’s World Championships in Moscow.
