British long-distance runner, Sir Mohamed Muktar Jama Farah is reported to have a net worth of $5 million.
British distance runner Sir Mohamed Muktar Jama Farah was born on March 23, 1983. His birth name was Abdi Kahin. He is the most successful male track distance runner in history, owing to four Olympics and six World Championships gold medals. He is also the most successful British track athlete in the history of the modern Olympics. Farah won Olympic gold medals in both the 5,000 m and 10,000 m in London 2012 and Rio 2016. After Lasse Virén, he is the second athlete to win the 5,000 and 10,000 metre races in the same Olympic Games. He also accomplished the ‘distance double’ at the World Athletics Championships in 2013 and 2015.
Farah has usually raced over 5,000 and 10,000 meters on the track, but he has run competitively from 1,500 meters to the marathon. Following his victory in his final track race, the 2017 IAAF Diamond League 5,000 meters final, he announced his decision to transition entirely to road racing. He set a European record by winning the 2018 Chicago Marathon in a timing of 2:05:11. Farah runs distance races tactically, which is facilitated by his speedy sprint finish.
Farah created history by being the first British athlete to take home two gold medals from a single world championship. He is the most successful individual athlete in the history of the European Athletics Championships because of his five gold medals. More than any other athlete, he has claimed the European Athlete of the Year title three times and the British Athletics Writers Association British Athlete of the Year award six times. Farah won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award in 2017. In 2013, Farah was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE), and in 2017 Queen Elizabeth II knighted him for his contributions to sports.
