Mo Goes Home Early
“Go hard or go home; the five words that amount to the mantra by which Mo Farah claims to live his life. It’s his slogan, his philosophy. At least it was until Sunday. On Sunday things got hard, and Farah went home.”
“Future lectures in crisis management might just reference Farah and British Athletics and their handling, so far, of the Alberto Salazar controversy.”
“The last few days have been astonishing, after all. One of those episodes in sport when you almost feel the need to watch events unfold through your fingers. An exercise in how to compound an already difficult situation by making one bad call after another.”
– Opening lines of an editorial by Matt Lawton in the Daily Mail slamming Mo Farah and UK Athletics for their handling of the Alberto Salazar doping allegations. Farah, the expected star attraction in Birmingham, flew home before the meet started, stating that he was “emotionally and physically drained.” Fans were irate as one quipped, “You don’t go to a rugby match and see one of the teams pull out, for this event you’re coming to see individuals compete,” as were many other athletes like Richard Kilty, who said, “I’d have shown up on one leg. It’s a shame for the fans. I think a lot of people have paid to watch him today.”
