Moo-ving tribute to Olympic hero


MANY tributes have been paid to British Olympic hero Mo Farah.

But none more unusual than that of Middle Farm at Firle – it named newly-born twin calves after the athlete.

‘Mo’ and ‘Farah’ arrived after his gold-medal winning triumph in the 10,000 metres.

Perhaps they inspired him to further glory at the Games – because he then went on to take gold in the 5,000 metres.

The twin calves are a British Blue crossed with one of the farm’s very own golden Jersey cows.

The runner, born in Somalia, thrilled the nation by becoming a double champion at London 2012. He won the 10,000 metres in a time of 27:30.42 – Great Britain’s first Olympic gold medal at the distance.

Seven days later he triumphed in the 5,000 metres in a time of 13:41.66, which inspired Farah’s unique victory celebration dance known as the ‘Mobot’.
