Mo Farah breaks 34-year British 3,000m record BBC Sport
Mo Farah broke Dave Moorcroft's 34-year-old British 3,000m record to underline his form with the Rio Olympics exactly two months away.
Roared on by a home support untroubled by that storm, he followed the pacemakers through the first 2,000m before hanging on over the last 600m to take a tenth of a second off that long-standing mark.
His seven minutes 32.62 seconds means he now holds the British track records at 1500m, two miles, 3,000m, 5,000m and 10,000m, as well as half-marathon on the road.

Muhammad Alis was an inspiration to sportsmen world wide says BBC Sport
No sportsman has touched more lives than Muhammad Ali. No sportsman has been celebrated so widely and deeply, and none will be mourned in quite the same way.
To talk of Ali as a champion heavyweight boxer is like saying the Beatles had a collective ear for melody. His skills in his chosen vocation were unmatched, but the effect they had on the world went far beyond those narrow proficiencies.
