British Olympian Mohammed “Mo” Farah stole our hearts when he won double gold medals at the 2012 Olympic Games in London while being the most ridiculously photogenic runner since this guy. Now a new single-serving Tumblr, Mo Farah Running Away From Things, has emerged to fulfill our need to see Mo Farah run while mugging for the cameras.
21-year-old graphic designer Luke Harvey started the blog on Sunday as “A tribute to Mo Farah for being a true Olympic legend, we love you Mo!” If anybody questions whether Harvey really idolizes the fellow Brit, his statement to The Independent should clear away all doubt: “Mo was my highlight. I was at my mate Luke’s house when he won and I thought, ‘you could put some wicked backgrounds on that’. So I did, for a bit of fun. […] I just hope Mo likes it – he’s such a legend.”
Our favorite pictures from Mo Farah Running Away From Things are collected below. Thanks to The Independent for the assist.
