Muhammed Farah: First British Muslim Gold Medallist

Mohammed Farah came to the UK at the age of 8 and barely understood a word of English. Now at the ripe age of 29, he is an Olympic champion for Great Britain. He represents what British Muslims have been trying to show the mainstream public for years…we are Muslim and British; both can coincide very happily without us being targets of racist attacks and without picking a side or needing to paint our houses in Union Jacks. Thank you Mohammed “Mo” Farah, you have done us all proud.
