Mo Farah wins 1500m heat at the Olympic trials

Mo Farah comfortably won his heat in the 1500m at the Olympic trials.

Mo normally runs the 5000m and 10,000m but chose to practise with the 1500m. To a roaring crowd he ran the final 100m managing to spell out Mo with his arms in what's called the "Mobot" - a moved suggested/created by James Cordon.

That was nice and comfortable. It felt good.

It’s nice to see people coming out on a Friday night after work with the kids. For me tonight was just about getting a good race in and that was it."

– Mo Farah, British runner
