Mo Farah wins Rock n Roll New Orleans 21k
24th February 2013 – In only the second half marathon of his career Olympic and World track Champion Mo Farah (GBR) won the Rock n Roll New Orleans half marathon in a British and Course Record time of 60:59. The Alberto Salazar coached athlete fought a great duel with former New York marathon Champion Gebre Gebremarian (ETH) for much of the race before moving clear in the final 200m. "There were a lot of people shouting out, 'Go Mo,'" Farah told race organizers. "It was good to get that support. I was working pretty hard. It was an effort and I was really pushing it. It was definitely a fast course with good guys pushing the pace, and with about 200 meters left I just kicked it in."
In Puerto Rico Mark Kiptoo (KEN) placed 5th and Emmanuel Bett (KEN) 9th in the World’s Best 10k.
