Farah vows to return after tough debut
Bubba once again rules the Masters
MoFarahhasvowednottoabandon his marathon ambitions after a chastening transition from track to road on his competitive debut over 26.2 miles in London on Sunday.
The Briton, who built up an aura of invincibility after winning 5 000 and 10 000 metre titles at the last Olympics and world championships, said he was disappointed to finish eighth, nearly four minutes behind winner Wilson Kipsang of Kenya.
“I will be back. 100 per cent. I’m not going to finish on a down. I wanted to give it a try,” he said of his decision to take on the greatest marathon line-up ever assembled.
Bubba Watson has won his second Masters in three years, by the comfortable margin of three strokes, and the long-hitting lefty sounded like he needed to pinch himself to believe it.
“A guy named Bubba from a small town, born in Pensacola, Florida, raised in Bagdad (Florida), it’s crazy to think that you’ve won,” Watson said at the champion’s news conference.
“A small-town guy named Bubba now has two green jackets. It’s pretty wild.”
