Mo Farah trains with deer at London's Richmond Park
Spectacular images that the four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah has left us. The Reuters Agency has immortalized the British of Somali origin in London's famous Richmond Park surrounded by deer in an idyllic environment while he continues training with that goal of the Tokyo 2021 Olympics. Farah will defend the titles of 5,000 and 10,000 and will have to train very very hard so that the African gazelles in the background do not take it away.

‘Sir’ Mo has been training alone in this famous green space in the English capital. In recent declarations he assured that “the fact that the Games have been postponed I think helps me a little to get better. It gives me one more year to participate in tests and continue training, so I think it suits me" Farah usually spends long times in Ethiopia training, but this confinement has decided to stay in London with the family, where she has had to figure out, like all professional and non-professional athletes, to maintain their fitness. “At the level of form it is clear that it has affected us all, because you cannot go to the gym, you cannot compete. I was lucky to have a tape at home to train. I have also tried to be creative training with my children, ”says Mo.
"I think we should be positive. As long as we maintain a goal and motivation everything will be easier. There are people in a much worse situation than ours, who cannot leave home, separated parents who cannot see their children, "adds Farah.
