- British Olympic double gold medallist Mo Farah believes Sebastian Coe will clean up crisis-ridden athletics if he is elected International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) president this week. Coe will find out on Wednesday in Beijing if he has won the vote to succeed 82-year-old Senegalese Lamine Diack. The 58-year-old, a double Olympic 1,500 metres champion, is running against pole vault legend Sergey Bubka. "I hope (Coe) gets that job because I believe he can change athletics," said Farah. "What he did for London 2012 was incredible, so I believe he can do a great job. If we all did what we do in the UK in terms of how we do testing, if every country applied to that rule, it would change dramatically. It would change a lot."
