Good­man in awe of Mo

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY BRIAN SACKS

ATH­LET­ICS RICHARD Good­man gave a solid per­for­mance for Team GB in the Great Ed­in­burgh Cross Coun­try 8K, the race that fea­tured a rare de­feat for Olympic cham­pion Mo Farah.

Good­man fin­ished 19th, 57 sec­onds be­hind Amer­i­can win­ner Gar­rett Heath, as GB won the team com­pe­ti­tion ahead of USA and Europe.

“I ac­tu­ally ran against Mo in the same race five years ago, with a sim­i­lar re­sult,” said Good­man. “Like some of my team­mates, I went off a bit too quickly, en­joy­ing the pres­ence of the tele­vi­sion cam­eras cov­er­ing the Mo show.”
