Farah: I won't break two-hour mark
Mo Farah has played down suggestions he could break the two-hour barrier for a marathon.
The Olympic 10,000 metres and 5,000 metres champion is targeting next year's London Marathon as he seeks a fresh challenge, but said it was "crazy" to believe he could not only challenge the world record of two hours three minutes and 23 seconds but smash it by completing the 26.2 mile route in under two hours.
"It's pretty crazy to say that in my first ever marathon I'm going to shave three minutes off," Farah, 30, said on BBC Breakfast.
"If you look at the world record it's slowly been broken before, from 2:04, 2:03. To say I'm going to shave that off is completely crazy.
"I don't think (two hours) is going to be broken in the next 10 years or even beyond that, maybe even 100 years, because if you think about it, it's really difficult.
"The rumours actually started because my sponsors, Nike, are working on a show called 'Sub Two-Hour'. They keep working on that, and that's how the rumours started. I never actually said it."
