On Saturday 23rd July, double Olympic, world and European champion Mo Farah will headline Super Saturday at the Müller Anniversary Games as he competes in his first 5000m race at the Olympic Stadium since winning gold there at London 2012.
The British athletics legend has targeted this as the crucial final event before he flies to Rio de Janeiro looking to defend his Olympic title. Farah said: “This will be my final race before the Rio Olympics and I want to give my home fans a day to remember!”
The Müller Anniversary Games incorporates two world class athletics events – the IAAF London Diamond League and the IPC Grand Prix Final – the last major events before the Olympic and Paralympic Games commence in Brazil this summer.
Olympic and world heptathlon champion and global icon Jennica Ennis-Hill is also set to compete on Super Saturday. She tackles the long jump and will look to build on an impressive performance in Ratingen, Germany, where she recently won the IAAF World Combined Events Challenge with a score of 6733.
