18 Feb Radcliffe baffled by Farah’s Marathon plan… (and she thinks he might be too skinny!)

Paula Radcliffe thinks it is strange for Mo Farah to start his marathon career by running only half the distance in London in April and questioned whether he will be too skinny to excel on the road.

Farah, the double Olympic champion on the track over 5,000metres and 10,000m, will earn a lucrative fee to drop out after 13.1 miles of this year’s London Marathon before making his full competitive debut in 2014.
