British long distance runner – Mo Farah is hoping to earn Tokyo 2020 slot in Olympic selection event and European Cup competition at University of Birmingham on Saturday June 5.

The Olympic champion will take on rising stars – Marc Scott, Jake Smith and Sam Atkin over 25 laps – 10,000 meters.

The trio have been named as part of the British team for the European 10,000m Cup, which is held as part of the Müller British Athletics 10,000m Championships.

Since 2017 Mo Farah has only raced once on the track – in a one-hour run in Brussels last summer but he appears to be ready ahead of the Birmingham event.

Farah’s last 10,000m on the track was at the 2017 World Championships in London where he won his sixth world title.

Since then he has enjoyed a foray on to the roads and the marathon but he is returning to the track this year to try to win another Olympic track title aged 38.
