By Mike Rowbottom at Crystal Palace

Mo_Farah_wins_3000m_Crystal_Palace_August_5_2011August 5 - Home fans went home from this venerable, but re-vamped south-east London venue tonight convinced that they had seen a British world champion-to-be in the shape of Mo Farah, who produced what you could only describe as an Ethiopian finish to win a top class 3,000 etresm which closed the first of two days' action at the Samsung Diamond League meeting.

By Mike Rowbottom at Croydon Park Hotel in London

Mo_Farah_at_Croydon_Park_Hotel_August_4_2011August 4 - Mo Farah insisted today that, despite reports saying he would only run the 10,000 metres at the IAAF World Championships starting in South Korea this month, he would be keeping his options open to double up over the 5,000m, as he did in winning the two titles for Britain at last year's European Championships.
