3 2. An immigrant s story: Mo Farah Mo Farah was born in Mogadishu, Somalia, on 23 March, He moved to London, in the United Kingdom, at the age of 8, with two of his brothers, because his father was working in London. However, Mo was separated from his twin brother, Hassan, who stayed in Somalia. When he arrived in London, Mo didn t speak any English and he had to learn quickly in order to integrate in his new school, Feltham Community College in London. His Physical Education (PE) teacher there was Alan Watkinson, and he gave him a lot of support. Alan could see that Mo was a talented runner, and he helped to coach him, and to encourage Mo to take running seriously. Mo started doing well in competitions from the age of 13. When he was 14, he won an English school title. When he was 18, he won the 5,000m title at the European Athletics Junior Championship in At this point, Mo became a full-time athlete, and started to take part in Senior competitions. He started to train with a group of Kenyan runners, and lived a very disciplined life, which consisted of eating, training and resting. Mo had to face some disappointments in his career. In 2007, he only finished in sixth place in the Osaka World Championships, and in 2008 he was knocked out of the Beijing Olympics. However Mo continued to work hard at improving his technique, and went to train at high altitudes in Kenya and Ethiopia in In 2009, he won a gold medal at the European Indoor Championships, and won a silver medal in the 2009 European Cross Country Championships. The following year, Mo took a break from his running in order to marry his long-term girlfriend, Tania Nell. Over the next few years, he continued to win more medals, including a gold medal at the 2011 World Championships in South Korea. Finally, Mo had the chance to show that he was one of the best athletes in the world, at the London Olympics, in He managed to achieve an incredible double victory, by winning gold medal for both the 5,000 and 10,000 metres events. He received massive public support for his achievements. His joy at this success, was followed shortly after the Olympic Games by further happiness, when Mo became the father of twin daughters.
