Sir Mo Farah running kit loaned to Madame Tussauds Blackpool
The Sir Mo Farah CBE wax figure at Madame Tussauds Blackpool has received a new look to mark the runner’s last competitive outing in the Great North Run on Sunday, September 10th.
Mo Farah wax figure restyled
Four-time Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah is set to retire from competitive running in 2024 and he will compete in the Great North Run for the final time this weekend. Keen to help celebrate his illustrious running career, Blackpool’s Madame Tussauds has updated the wax figure of Mo with a GB running kit which he wore when triumphing in the 2017 Great North Run. This was the fourth time in succession that he won the contest and the newly dressed wax figure will remind visitors of this amazing achievement.
Sir Mo said: “I’ve had an amazing career but all good things must come to an end. However, I hope when people visit Madame Tussauds Blackpool and see my wax figure dressed in kit it will remind them of some happy memories, or help to inspire the next generation and show them that anything is possible”
