Getting off on the good (fast) foot

Great Britain’s middle distance runner Mo Farah has challenged Jamaica’s sprint champion Usain Bolt to a run for charity.  Only contention is the distance – Usain is the fastest but can he go the distance; Mo can go the distance but is he fast enough in the short run to get ahead enough to get there first?  That’s the issue.  Suggested length so far is 600 meters.  Hmm… If they do it, I’m going with Bolt.

Is it a heart?  Is it a Big M?  Does he have a headache?  None of the above – apparently he was challenged to come up with some sort of signature move to rival Bolt’s winning celebration style and this is what he came up with – now referred to as the “Mobot” …. It’s a little weak but seeing as how he can outrun me at any distance, he can do what he wants.
