Please could someone explain how the LRC Farah hatred works please:-
On this thread I read that he is a dirty drugs cheat who only won because he was doped to his eyeballs.
Yet on another I read he doesn't even qualify as a top 10 all time great because he was too slow, never troubled any world records.
So what is the overall story? Are we saying he was an absolutely useless drugs cheat?
If by "absolutely useless drugs cheat" you mean an athlete who transformed from a back of the packer to world beater at the age of 27, then yes. Mo is so obviously filthy it's amazing that he has any fans left.
Interestingly, I just watched the Berlin WC 5000 this morning on the treadmill at work. I had forgotten what a plodder he used to be. He got absolutely throttled.
