Sir Mo Farah + Lady Tania Farah. Husband + Wife.
Mo Farah is Britain’s greatest male long distance athlete. He upset the global order from 2011 to 2017, bagging 10 world titles, including the Olympic ‘double double’ over the 5,000 and 10,000m. But in a heartbreaking admission last year, Mo revealed he had been illegally trafficked to the UK as a child and he had hidden the secret from all but those closest to him.
Alongside Mo is his wife, Tania. Friends since school, Tania has been at Mo’s side for every step of his remarkable personal and professional journey, while raising their four children. Tania is now studying for a degree in criminology and has become a keen long distance runner herself, competing in a number of half marathons.
Together, they talk about the burden of Mo’s long periods away from home, how the trauma of trafficking has shaped the athlete we know and whether 2023 might be the year he hangs up his running shoes for good.
This four way conversation was recorded on 10th January 2023.
