In his farewell track season, the four-time Olympic gold medallist will run at his last Anniversary Games in July

Mo Farah has been announced for the Müller Anniversary Games 3000m on July 9 as he works his way towards the IAAF World Championships in the UK capital in August.

The four-time Olympic gold medallist plans to focus on road racing after 2017 and is set to compete at the Anniversary Games as part of his farewell track season.

“I love competing at the London Stadium and look forward to what will be my final Müller Anniversary Games on July 9,” said the 34-year-old.

“A lot of the world’s best athletes come to London for the Müller Anniversary Games and I expect this year’s line-up to be as strong as usual, it will be like a mini-world championships in one day.”

After beating a top-class 5000m field with a world-leading time of 13:00.70 at the Prefontaine Classic on Saturday, Farah is next set to race over 3000m at the Racers Grand Prix in Kingston on June 10.

Looking ahead to the Anniversary Games, Farah added: “The meet is only four weeks before the World Championships so it will be good to see where I am at and what fine tuning needs to be done.

“I had some great races in this stadium and would like to put on a good performance to thank the fans for all their support over the years.

“I hope the fans will come out in force and create a great atmosphere.”
