LRC editor’s note: Mo Farah was set to make his 2014 Diamond League track debut this weekend in Scotland, but that has been called off because of a medical condition. Press release from Mo’s agent below. 2014 has been a tough year for Mo medically as earlier this year, Mo passed out after the NYC Half Marathon.

Mo Farah has been forced to cancel his participation in the 2 miles at the Sainsbury’s Glasgow Grand Prix due to illness.  The double Olympic and World Champion was admitted to hospital in the USA with abdominal pains for a couple of days last week and is undergoing further testing in the UK with British Athletics medical team this week.  He hopes to compete in the 2 miles at the London Anniversary Games on July 20 instead.  He plans to be back in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games at the end of the month.

“Sorry to everyone in Scotland but I won’t be able to make it there this week.  I hope to resume training in the next few days and aim to run in the London Anniversary Games on July 20 and then the Commonwealth Games the following week.”
