Farah wins Great North Run for sixth consecutive year

LONDON: Britain’s Mo Farah won a record sixth successive Great North Run after setting his personal best time on Sunday.

The Olympic gold medallist raced ahead of Ethiopian Tamirat Tola in the final mile to cross the line in 59 minutes and six seconds.

Farah, double Olympic champion at both 5,000 and 10,000 metres, said the race was an ideal preparation for October’s Chicago

Marathon, with his sights set firmly on running at the Tokyo Olympics next year.

“The crowd was so loud I didn’t know if he was closing the gap so I kept looking behind,” the 36-year-old told BBC Sport.

The women’s course record was beaten by Kenyan Brigid Kosgei, who ran the fastest half-mara-thon ever in a one hour, four minutes and 28 seconds.

Her time was 23 seconds quicker than the world record set in 2017 by fellow Kenyan Joyciline Jepkosgei but the course in the northeast of England is not eligible for records.

Kosgei, who won this year’s London Marathon, led a Kenyan sweep of the top four places, with Magdalyne Masai second (1:07.36) and Linet Masai third (1:07:44)
