BUTCHART IS NOW A BELIEVER

EUAN CRUMLEY SPEAKS TO A YOUNG BRITON WHO IS NOT AFRAID OF SUCCESS —OR TAKING OVER FROM MO FARAH

ANDREW BUTCHART is clearly not an athlete who is easily fazed. After all, this is a man who broke the long-standing Scottish 5000m record in May, despite losing a shoe for the final lap.

This is also a man who, in July, saw off some highly esteemed company to finish second behind Mo Farah at the Anniversary Games in London.

And this is a man who, when faced with the challenge of his first Olympic 5000m final, did not shrink from the task. Rather, he grew in stature with almost every passing stride in Rio — at one point dictating race proceedings with Farah — before finishing a hugely creditable sixth, breaking that Scottish record once again into the bargain.

Britain’s multi-Olympic and world champion won’t be around forever, of course, and 2017 is expected to be the final year of track competition in Farah’s storied career before he turns his attention to the roads.

The 33-year-old’s absence will leave a sizeable hole in British endurance track running but, when asked about the prospect of trying to fill it, Butchart’s assured response comes as little surprise.
