One of the best fondistas in the history of athletics, Mo Farah, and one of the best sprinters in the history of athletics, Mark Cavendish, will form a spectacular Team Dream Team ’at the Ironman 70.3 in Bahrain. In addition, they will be joined by swimmer Chloe McCardel in what will be a top-level trio in each of the ‘ironman’ disciplines. McCardenal holds the world record for more kilometers swimming in the ocean without assistance and is one of the best talents that has taken the open water swimming. The Australian has crossed the English Channel 29 times.

Splattered by the Sala Salazar case ’

Of Mo Farah little can be said that is not known. Farah, winner of four Olympic golds in London and Rio de Janeiro, will participate in this relay of Legends in the Bahrain Ironman 70.3 Middle East Championship next Saturday, December 7. This team will be one of the 100 that will participate this weekend in the Arab country. It should be noted that the last Farah competition was the last Chicago Marathon, where he finished eighth with a 2:09:58 mark. Lately, the name of the Briton has been too "splashed" by all the controversy over the sanction of Alberto Salazar and the dismantling of the Nike Oregon Project he was commanding.

You will return to the track in Tokyo

Farah recently announced that he will return to the track in the face of the Tokyo Games next summer after a fairly discreet tour of the marathon. Discreet might be too cruel, but the truth is that he has not been able to discuss the throne at the moment or approach the great marathoners of the moment (His best mark is 2:05:11 of the London Marathon 2018). Sir Mo will defend his Olympic champion title in the 10,000.
