Usain Bolt And Mo Farah To Race Over 600m?
Sprint star and long-distance runner could meet in middle for charity...
The fastest man on two legs was offered a race by Farah in the wake of them both dominating their events at the London Anniversary Games over the weekend.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Mo said: "He's got his charity foundation, I've got the Mo Farah Foundation. It would be great to do a distance where people vote in, proper athletics fans, on what distance they think the most suitable.
"Are you up for that? Come on, you've got to do it. Let's get it on."
And Jamaican sprint sensation and reggae fan Bolt, who holds the world record for the 100m and 200m, seemed happy to accept the challenge.
He said: "That sounds fun. It's going to be hard but it's charity so it's all about fun and enjoyment. I'm up for anything, for anything's possible."
But he said 1,500m would be out of the question.
"It's way too far," he explained. "Six hundred for sure I can try because I've done 600m in training."
