Tarmoh trumps Felix as Farah flies to US


BIRMINGHAM, UK: American Jeneba Tarmoh trumped running mate Allyson Felix in the 200m at Sunday’s (Monday in Manila) Diamond League meet marred by the late withdrawal of Briton Mo Farah and five other Olympic champions. A “drained” Farah skipped the meet to jet back to his US training base to confront coach Alberto Salazar over allegations in a BBC documentary that the latter had encouraged athletes including American training partner Galen Rupp to use illegal substances. Farah, said at a press conference on Saturday that he was “angry” his name had “been dragged through the mud,” and that he had no hesitation about withdrawing, saying: “This week has been very stressful and taken a lot out of me.”
