London, Aug 12 : Olympic champion, Mo Farah, who created history in London after he stormed to his second gold in week winning the 5000 m race in the Olympics, dedicated his double victory to his unborn twin daughters, who are due any day.
Farah became the new Olympic and world champion after finished the 52sec final lap to win the race, which marks his second Olympic title after the 10,000 m he won seven days earlier.
"Those medals are for my girls, they are not born yet. It could be any day, the doctors say we have 12 days, but I did not want to leave one out, because they are twins," The Telegraph quoted Farah, as saying.
Farah said the medals vindicated his decision to move to America and train with coach Alberto Salazar.
"I'm glad it paid off. When I was moving to America people were saying, everything's going so well, why do you need to do that, but as an athlete you sometimes have to make choices and I'm glad I got the right choice," he said.
"It is an unbelievable feeling, the best feeling ever. I never thought coming to London I would be double Olympic champion, it doesn't come round often. If it wasn't for the crowd I wouldn't have run that fast," he added. (ANI)
