Mo Farah denies snubbing Commonwealth Games

Mo Farah rejects reports that he is planning to sit out next year's Commonwealth Games.

Mo Farah has denied reports that he is planning to snub next summer's Commonwealth Games.

The Olympic gold medallist insists that he is yet to decide whether to compete in the tournament, with the London Marathon being his top priority.

"The headlines in all the papers today (Wednesday) said Mo might not be doing the Commonwealth Games, but that's totally not true," he told talkSPORT.

"What I said was, as an athlete and a long distance runner, you've got to take one race at a time. My aim is to do the London Marathon, get that out of the way and then, depending on your body and if you have any injuries, that's when you think about your next race.

"There's still a good chance [I'll be at the Commonwealth Games] but I'm not saying that's my aim. My aim is the London Marathon. I'll get that out of the way and see I feel. It's 26.2miles, it's a long way!"

The Commonwealth Games will take place in Glasgow from July 23, 2014.
