Mo Farah

(Previously posted on Facebook)

To this day, I’ve never watched Mo Farah‘s winning races at The Olympic Games in London in 2012. But I remember exactly where I was when he won his first gold there.

The lovely British Somali family who lived downstairs from us at the time were most certainly watching it happen on their TV, and I will never forget the cheers and cries… they were like nothing I’d ever heard before, such intense joy and emotion… the memory alone still gives me goosebumps.

Mo won more than a gold medal that day, and not just for himself.
