Mo Farah to compete in Lausanne

British distance runner Mo Farah will compete in the 5000m at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne on Thursday evening.

Mo Farah has decided to feature in the 5000m in Lausanne on Thursday evening, his first appearance since doping allegations were made against his coach Alberto Salazar.

Last month, a BBC Panorama documentary alleged that Salazar had encouraged doping among his athletes at the Nike Oregon Project, but stressed that Farah was in no way implicated in their investigation.

However, the claims resulted in Farah withdrawing from a meeting in Birmingham as he sought answers from the American, but after returning to training, the world and Olympic champion has opted to feature at the Diamond League meeting in Switzerland.

The British distance runner is also expected to compete in Monaco and London before the end of the month as he continues to prepare for the World Athletics Championships in Beijing.
