Farah targets two-mile indoor record in Birmingham

Twickenham's Mo farah has targeted the British two-mile indoor record at tomorrow's Aviva Grand Prix at the NIA in Birmingham.

The 5,000m world champion, who is now based in the States, has started 2012 in fine style having already won on home soil over 1,500m in Glasgow last month.

And he admitted home supoport, which he will get the London 2012 Olympics, has played a key part in his success so far.

Farah said: “The British record is definitely a target.

"I’ve just got to get in the right race though and not think about any times, to try to be more competitive than anything else.

He added: “The support that I get at home events is a really great addition and it gives me a big boost.

"It’s one of the reasons that I’m looking forward to the race tomorrow. If I’m struggling in the final stretches, I know that the home crowd will give me an added boost.”
