Hungry Farah confident of Tokyo Olympics marathon medal

By Sports Desk October 06, 2018

Mo Farah is confident he can add to his medal haul in the marathon at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Farah switched from the track to the road last year and set a new British record when he was third in the London Marathon in April. 

The 35-year-old won 5,000 metres and 10,000m gold at both the London and Rio Olympics and has a podium finish in Japan in his sights.

"I am definitely going." said Farah, who will compete in the Chicago Marathon on Sunday.

"As long as my body can hold up, I am definitely going to Tokyo. I know from my training that I am definitely capable of getting a medal. I don't know what the colour is going to be, but I want to continue through 2020.

"A medal would definitely rank up there in terms of being a track runner and being able to do something in the marathon. In my mind, it’s something I’ve always thought I could do."

Farah also plans to race in the 2019 World Championships in Doha.
