Mo Farah has signed up to be a contestant on British reality tv show, "I'm a Celebrity." For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it sounds like it's a bit like the US show Survivor. Here is how Wikipedia describes it.
The format sees a group of celebrities living together in an Australian jungle camp with few creature comforts (this year they will be in Wales due to Covid-19). Each member undertakes challenges to secure additional food and treats for the group, and to avoid being voted out by viewers during their stay, with the final episode's votes nominating who wins a series and become crowned as "King or Queen of the Jungle".
I have a number of questions about this.
1) People who have seen the show: Will he be able to run during the show? The show in past years has lasted 22 days. Plus he has to quarantine before it starts.
2) Let's say he misses three weeks of training starting on November 15th. Do you think that hurts his Olympic chances? Or might it be a positive to really take a break before going all in on Tokyo 2021?
3) Does anyone think Salazar would have allowed this?
Here is some more info.
