• Farah wants family in Rio despite Zika threat


    LONDON: British distance-running star Mo Farah has insisted he wants his family with him when he defends his Olympic titles in Brazil later this year, despite the threat of the Zika virus. Farah won gold in both the Olympic 5,000 and 10,000 meters in front of his home crowd in London four years ago and is considered one of Britain’s strongest contenders for more medal success in Rio. “I’m quite excited. In London one of the best things ever was having my family on the track. Seeing my wife and daughter there was incredible. “I’m not even thinking about anything like [the Zika virus]. I want them there and that’s it,” said Farah.
