Mo Farah announces last track appearance after Championships

MOVING ON: Mo Farah

OLYMPIC CHAMPION Mo Farah has announced that his last race on the track in Britain will be at the Grand Prix in Birmingham in August.

Farah, 34, said last year that he will focus on marathons after this year's World Championships in London, which run from 4-13 August.

But he will now compete in the Diamond League at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham on the track on 20 August.

"I'm sure it will be a day I remember for the rest of my life," he said.

Farah won the 5,000m and 10,000m golds at both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics.

And he will attempt a third 5,000m/10,000m double at the World Championships next month.

The five-time world champion added: "I'll be looking for a good final performance to thank the fans for all their support over the years."
