Mo's Message

A message from our Patron, Mo Farah

Double Olympic Champion and the UK's greatest ever distance runner

Mo Farah

The road to London 2012 started at school for me. School introduced me to the sport and supported me through the curriculum. It exposed me to a range of extra curricular opportunities and competitions. It introduced me to club sport and supported my development. 

I passionately believe in the power of sport to change lives. I desperately want all young people to have the opportunity to enjoy physical activity, engage in competitive sport and to learn through physical education. 

The work of Sport Impact and their like-minded organisations is critical in supporting the improvement of physical literacy and other essential skills that support the development of confident and competent learners. 

I am proud to be associated with Sport Impact and wish all schools success in developing a world class physical education and sport programme for your schools.
