The National - News - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

Bri­tish dis­tance run­ner Mo Farah said he had no re­grets about calling time on his track ca­reer to fo­cus on road rac­ing. The four-time Olympic gold medal­list will race his last 10,000m on the IAAF cir­cuit at the Golden Spike meet in Os­trava, Czech Repub­lic, to­day. Farah, who dom­i­nated the 5k and 10k events, said: “It’s a lit­tle bit sad be­cause ob­vi­ously track is where I made it, where it changed my life in terms of com­pet­ing at London Olympic Games and win­ning the dou­ble and con­tin­u­ing from there. But I have to move on now, ev­ery­thing must come to an end at some point. I have some un­fin­ished busi­ness on the road.”
